v.

Appeal from Lexington County
 Larry R. Patterson, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-573
Submitted October 1, 2008 – Filed October 14, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Eleanor Duffy Cleary, South Carolina Commission of Indigent Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott; Office of the Attorney General, of Columbia; and Solicitor Donald V. Myers, of Lexington; for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Shepherd was convicted of trafficking cocaine, ten grams or more, but less than twenty-eight grams.  On appeal, Shepherd’s counsel argues the trial court erred in denying Shepherd’s motion to suppress the cocaine discovered in the search of the car.  Shepherd also filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record, counsel’s brief, and Shepherd’s pro se brief pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

HEARN, C.J., and GEATHERS, J., and CURETON, A.J., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
