            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Henry County, Mary Ann Brown and John M. Wright, Judges.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (7 pages)

            Jeffrey Hummell appeals his conviction for possession of methamphetamine, second offense, contending the State failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he knowingly or intentionally possessed the controlled substance.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we find the State presented sufficient evidence from which a jury could reasonably infer that Hummell had knowledge the items in his pocket contained methamphetamine, we affirm his conviction.
