v.

Israel Colecio, Appellant.


Appeal From Pickens County
G. Edward Welmaker, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2012-UP-101
Submitted February 1, 2012 – Filed February 22, 2012   


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender LaNelle Cantey DuRant, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Alan Wilson, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Salley W. Elliott, all of Columbia; and Solicitor W. Walter Wilkins, III, of Greenville, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Israel Colecio appeals his convictions for two trafficking methamphetamine charges and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, arguing the trial court erred in denying his motion for a directed verdict on all charges when the State failed to prove he possessed the drugs or the gun.  After a thorough review of the record and counsel's 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. 

FEW, C.J., HUFF and SHORT, JJ., concur.


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