            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Scott County, John Telleen, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Schumacher and Chicchelly, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (11 pages)

            Darrien Irving appeals his convictions for drug-related offenses and possession of a firearm by prohibited person.  He claims the State offered insufficient evidence for his drug-related convictions.  And he contends the district court should have ordered a competency hearing for him.  OPINION HOLDS: Because the State offered substantial evidence of Irving’s possession and intent to deliver and Irving displayed no indicia of incompetency, we affirm.
