This disposition is not appropriate for publication and is not precedent except as provided bv 9th Cir. R. 36-3.
Vincent Malicek appeals his conviction for armed robbery. We have jurisdiction under 28 U.S.C. § 1291, and we affirm.
Evidence of Malicek's unemployment, poor financial circumstances, child support arrearages, and failure to pay for drug testing was properly admitted to show a sudden and unexplained change in Malicek's financial circumstances in the days surrounding the robbery. United States v. Mitchell, 172 F.3d 1104, 1109 (9th Cir. 1999); see also United States v. Jackson, 882 F.2d 1444, 1450 (9th Cir. 1989).
