SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK APPELLATE DIVISION SECOND JUDICIAL DEPARTMENT
February 24, 2009
THE PEOPLE, ETC., RESPONDENT,
DEAN WALKER, APPELLANT.
Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Kings County (Gary, J.), rendered October 27, 2006, convicting him of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree, criminal sale of marijuana in the fourth degree, and unlawful possession of marijuana, upon a jury verdict, and imposing sentence. The appeal brings up for review the denial, after a hearing, of that branch of the defendant's omnibus motion which was to suppress physical evidence.

DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
Contrary to the defendant's contention, the record supports the hearing court's determination to credit the police officer's testimony (see People v Sutherland, 40 AD3d 890; People v Reaves, 209 AD2d 647; People v Lebron, 184 AD2d 784). Furthermore, the record supports the hearing court's finding that the police possessed probable cause to arrest him (see People v Jones, 90 NY2d 835; People v McRay, 51 NY2d 594; People v Powell, 32 AD3d 544; People v Owens, 155 AD2d 696).
PRUDENTI, P.J., DILLON, COVELLO and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
