OPINION

�1 This is an appeal from the judgment of sentence entered by the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County after a jury convicted Appellant of Possession with Intent to Deliver *fn1 and Criminal Conspiracy.*fn2 Herein, Appellant alleges that the trial court erred in refusing to suppress evidence obtained during a search incident to his warrantless arrest, a subsequent residential search pursuant to a warrant, and an inventory search of his vehicle. We affirm.

�2 Philadelphia Police arrested Appellant for his alleged involvement in the sale of crack cocaine to an undercover officer. Specifically, the record shows that, on the night of September 13, 1999, officers from the Narcotics Field Unit participated in a drug surveillance and attempted buy in the 5500 block of Beaumont Street in Philadelphia. Undercover officer Bradford Mitchell sought to purchase a quarter ounce of crack cocaine at 5503 Beaumont, where he had before purchased a similar amount. From his unmarked car, Officer Mitchell summoned one Antoinette Simmons, who was sitting on the steps of 5503 Beaumont. He told her he needed to buy “another quarter,” so she walked to 5503 Beaumont and entered the apartment house briefly, returning outside with Appellant and one Darnell Thomas. Officer Mitchell saw the three confer on the apartment steps for a short time and then watched Appellant leave the scene driving in a gray Oldsmobile with Thomas riding passenger. Simmons approached Officer Mitchell’s car and told him that the two men would be right back. N.T. 5/4/00 at 4-9.
