Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Jasper County, Steven J. Holwerda, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (8 pages)

            A jury found Tommy Dean Sanders, Jr. guilty of third-degree burglary and possession of contraband on or in the grounds of a correctional facility.  Sanders contends (1) the evidence was insufficient to support the findings of guilt and (2) the district court erred in denying his motion to dismiss the possession-of-contraband charge.  OPINION HOLDS: We affirm Sanders’ judgment and sentence for third-degree burglary and possession of contraband on or in the grounds of a correctional facility.
