Defendant's drug distribution conviction is affirmed where: 1) defendant lacked standing to challenge the search of a cooler containing PCP found in defendant's vehicle because he did not assert ownership of it; and 2) a dog's alert to the presence of contraband is sufficient to provide probable cause to search a vehicle.
