Summary

      Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, David N. May, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Heard by Danilson, C.J., and Mullins and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (11 pages)

            Mejdil Ahmetovic appeals his convictions of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver and failure to affix a drug-tax stamp.  He asserts the district court erred in denying his motion to suppress evidence, contending the warrantless traffic stop and subsequent searches of his pocket and an automobile in which he was a passenger violated his constitutional rights against unreasonable searches and seizures under the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution and article I, section 8 of the Iowa Constitution.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm in all respects the district court’s denial of Ahmetovic’s motion to suppress.
