TRENTON C. THOMAS, APPELLANT,
UNITED STATES, APPELLEE.
APPEAL FROM THE SUPERIOR COURT, ROBERT S. TIGNOR, J.
Before Schwelb and Reid, Associate Judges, and Mack,
[715 A2d Page 122]
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Per Curiam:
Trenton C. Thomas was convicted by a jury of unlawful possession of cocaine *fn1 and of several weapons offenses. *fn1 The prosecution of Thomas was initiated after police recovered from the trunk of Thomas' automobile a machine gun, ammunition, and a battery cable bag containing crack cocaine with a street value of approximately $6700. On appeal, Thomas contends, that his convictions must be reversed because, according to Thomas, the judge had declared a mistrial before the jury returned its verdict of guilty. All three members of the court agree that this contention does not warrant reversal. Each judge has stated his or her reasons in a separate concurring opinion.
Thomas has also made a number of other claims of error. These claims are rejected for the reasons stated in footnote 4 to Judge Schwelb's opinion.
