DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed.
The County Court properly denied, without a hearing, the defendant's motion to set aside the verdict pursuant to CPL 330.30(2), based upon alleged juror misconduct (see People v Samandarov, 13 NY3d 433, 437-438; People v Thomas, 24 AD3d 1242, 1243).
The defendant's contention that the evidence was legally insufficient to support the convictions of attempted robbery in the first degree and attempted robbery in the second degree is unpreserved for appellate review (see CPL 470.05; People v Hawkins, 11 NY3d 484, 491-492). In any event, viewing the evidence in the light most favorable to the prosecution (see People v Contes, 60 NY2d 620, 621), the evidence was legally sufficient to establish, beyond a reasonable doubt, the defendant's guilt of both attempted robbery in the first degree (see Penal Law §§ 110, 160.15; People v Jackson, 59 AD3d 637, 638; People v Killings, 55 AD3d 852) and attempted robbery in the second degree (see Penal Law §§ 110, 160.10[a]; People v Chiddick, 8 NY3d 445; People v Perkins, 68 AD3d 494). The evidence also was legally sufficient to establish, beyond a reasonable doubt, the defendant's guilt of criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree (see Penal Law § 265.02; People v Shakespeare, 63 AD3d 861).
MASTRO, J.P., ENG, BELEN and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
