Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Black Hawk County, Joel A. Dalrymple, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., and Tabor and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, J.  (5 pages)

            Jason Burt appeals his convictions for possession of marijuana intent to deliver, second offense, and failure to affix a drug-tax stamp.  He challenges the district court’s ruling denying his motion to suppress the evidence seized during a traffic stop, contending there was no probable cause.  OPINION HOLDS: Because we find sufficient proof the officer had probable cause to believe Burt was violating Iowa Code sections 321.387 and 321.422 (2018) at the time of the stop, the seizure was reasonable under the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution.  Therefore, we affirm the denial of the motion to suppress and his convictions.
