Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, David Porter, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Mullins and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Vaitheswaran, P.J.  (3 pages)

            Salvador Cruz Jr. appeals the sentence entered by the district court following his convictions of possession of methamphetamine, failure to possess a tax stamp, and going armed with a concealed weapon, arguing the district court should have merged “the convictions for failure to possess a tax stamp and possession of a controlled substance.”  OPINION HOLDS: We discern no error in the district court’s refusal to merge the two offenses.
