CERTIFIED FOR PARTIAL PUBLICATION*fn1
Defendant Anthony Almanza appeals from his conviction of carrying a
concealed dirk or dagger (Pen. Code, former § 12020,*fn2
subd. (a)(4); count 1) and being under the influence of a
controlled substance (Health & Saf. Code, § 11550, subd. (a); count
2). Defendant contends the trial court erred in denying his motion to
suppress evidence under Penal Code section 1538.5, and there was no
substantial evidence to establish the amount of a booking fee or his
ability to pay such fee under Government Code section
II. FACTS AND PROCEDURAL BACKGROUND
In a patdown search on December 15, 2010, a police officer found a knife with a four-and-one-half-inch blade in defendant's pocket. Defendant appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance, and a field test indicated he was under the influence. After his arrest, he admitted that he smoked methamphetamine the previous night.
Defendant moved to suppress the evidence obtained during the stop. The motion was heard at the preliminary hearing on February 24, 2011. After the court denied his motion to suppress evidence, defendant pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed dirk or dagger (Pen. Code, § 12020, subd. (a)(4)) and being under the influence of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor (Health & Saf. Code, § 11550, subd. (a).) Defendant also admitted a prior prison term (Pen. Code, § 667.5, subd. (b).)
The trial court sentenced defendant to the low term of 16 months in prison for count 1 and ordered a concurrent 90-day term for count 2. The trial court struck the prison prior (Pen. Code, § 667.5, subd. (b)) and imposed various fines and fees, including a booking fee, or criminal justice administration fee, of $414.45.
