We affirm the conviction and sentence. However, we reverse the imposition of costs because the costs were imposed without adequate notice to and an opportunity to be heard by the defendant. See Mays v. State, 519 So.2d 618 (Fla. 1988); Jenkins v. State, 444 So.2d 947 (Fla. 1984).

I would reverse the conviction for possession of cocaine with intent to sell because the evidence is insufficient to prove constructive possession. Murphy v. State, 511 So.2d 397 (Fla. 4th DCA 1987).

I agree with the majority as to the reversal of the imposition of costs.
