APPEAL DISMISSED


Deputy Chief Appellate Defender Wanda H. Carter, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Solicitor Warren Blair Giese, all of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM: Jerry Belk appeals his guilty pleas for two counts of auto breaking and two counts of property offenses, third offenses.  On appeal, Belk's counsel alleges the trial court erred in accepting his plea without first receiving a factual basis for the pleas.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel's brief pursuant to Anders v.
