State v. McNeil, 209 N.C. App. 654 (Mar. 1, 2011)

There was sufficient evidence that the defendant constructively possessed the firearm. The defendant was identified as having broken into a house from which a gun was stolen. The gun was found in a clothes hamper at the home of the defendant’s ex-girlfriend’s mother. The defendant had arrived at the home shortly after the breaking and entering, entering through the back door and walking past the hamper. When the defendant was told that police were “around the house,” he fled to the front porch, where officers found him. A vehicle matching the description of the getaway car was parked outside.
