Appeal by the defendant from a judgment of the Supreme Court, Nassau County (Brown, J.), rendered January 11, 2008, convicting him of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fourth degree, criminal possession of a controlled substance in the fifth degree, criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, and resisting arrest, upon a jury verdict, and imposing sentence. The appeal bings up for review the denial, after a hearing (Berkowitz, J.), of those branches the defendant's omnibus motion which were to suppress physical evidence and his statements to law enforcement authorities.

STEVEN W. FISHER, J.P., JOSEPH COVELLO, DANIEL D. ANGIOLILLO & JOHN M. LEVENTHAL, JJ.
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
Viewing the evidence in the light most favorable to the prosecution (see People v Contes, 60 NY2d 620), we find that it was legally sufficient to establish the defendant's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Upon our independent review pursuant to CPL 470.15(5), we are satisfied that the verdict of guilt was not against the weight of the evidence (see People v Romero, 7 NY3d 633).
The defendant's remaining contentions are without merit.
FISHER, J.P., COVELLO, ANGIOLILLO and LEVENTHAL, JJ., concur.
