AFFIRMED

M. Rita Metts, of Metts Law Firm, and Chief Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, both of Columbia, for Appellant. Attorney General Alan McCrory Wilson and Assistant Attorney General J. Anthony Mabry, both of Columbia; and Solicitor Isaac McDuffie Stone, III, of Bluffton, all for Respondent. PER CURIAM : Antonio Collins appeals his convictions for murder, burglary in the first degree, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. Collins argues there was no probable cause for his arrest and the circuit court erred in admitting DNA evidence. We affirm pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR, and the following authorities: State v. Lindsey, 394 S.C. 354, 363, 714 S.E.2d 554, 558 (Ct. App. 2011) ("An issue is deemed abandoned and will not be considered on appeal if the argument is raised in a brief but not supported by authority."); State v. Dunbar, 356 S.C. 138, 142, 587 S.E.2d 691, 693 (2003) ("In order for an issue to be preserved for appellate review, it must have been raised to and ruled upon by the trial [court]."); State v. Hughes, 336 S.C. 585, 591, 521 S.E.2d 500, 503 (1999) (holding an in limine ruling is not final and does not preserve an issue for appeal); State v. Torrence, 305 S.C. 45, 51, 406 S.E.2d 315, 319 (1991) (holding a contemporaneous objection is required to properly preserve an error for appellate review); State v. Byers, 392 S.C. 438, 444, 710 S.E.2d 55, 58 (2011) (holding that for an objection to be timely, it must be made at the time the evidence is presented). AFFIRMED. LOCKEMY, C.J., and HUFF and THOMAS, JJ., concur.

We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR. --------
