Unpublished Opinion No. 2011-UP-012
Submitted January 1 ,2011 – Filed January 24, 2011
Appellate Defender LaNelle C. DuRant, of Columbia, for Appellant.
Attorney General Alan Wilson, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, and Assistant Attorney General Christina J. Catoe, all of Columbia; and Solicitor J. Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.
PER CURIAM: Maria Rodriguez appeals her conviction for
trafficking cocaine, second-offense, in an amount between ten and twenty-eight
grams. On appeal, Rodriguez argues the trial court erred in admitting
testimony regarding the police's knowledge of Rodriguez's possession of the car
and previous police incidents involving Rodriguez and the car. We
affirm pursuant to Rule 220(b)(1), SCACR, and the following authorities:
State v. Stanley, 365 S.C. 24, 42-43, 615 S.E.2d 455, 464 (Ct. App. 2005) ("In order to prove constructive possession, the State must show the defendant had dominion and control, or the right to exercise dominion and control, over either the drugs or the premises upon which the drugs are found."); Id. at 43, 615 S.E.2d at 465 ("The State must show the defendant had dominion or control over the thing allegedly possessed or had the right to exercise dominion or control over it."); State v. Wise, 272 S.C. 384, 387, 252 S.E.2d 294, 295-96 (1979) (finding evidence of the defendant's ownership and operation of the truck where the drugs were found is sufficient to prove the defendant had dominion and control over the drugs).
FEW, C.J., SHORT and WILLIAMS, JJ., concur.
 We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
