State v. Dallas, 205 N.C. App. 216 (Jul. 6, 2010)

In a larceny of motor vehicle case, the court rejected the defendant’s argument that testimony by the vehicle owners regarding the value of the stolen vehicles invaded the province of the jury as fact-finder, stating: “the owner of property is competent to testify as to the value of his own property even though his knowledge on the subject would not qualify him as a witness were he not the owner.”
