Where a defendant, who rented a house with his brother, asked their landlord to install a lock on his door and officers had to force the door open, the evidence was sufficient for a reasonable juror to find that the bedroom and safe in the bedroom were under the defendant’s exclusive control, so he had constructive possession of the items found within, and the convictions on drug charges are affirmed.
Judgment is affirmed.
