            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Linda M. Fangman and David P. Odekirk, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Tabor and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Greer, J. (9 pages)

            Jeremy Rutter appeals his conviction and sentence for two counts of possession with intent to deliver and one drug tax stamp violation.  Rutter argues a warrantless search of the master bedroom of his home was unconstitutional under the federal and state constitutions.  OPINION HOLDS: We conclude the warrantless search of the bedroom was based on voluntary consent and the district court properly denied Rutter’s motion to suppress.
