N.D.Ind.: RS came from GPS, pole camera surveillance, CI’s observations, police surveillance

“The Court concludes that the task force’s investigation of Cupp led to reasonable articulable suspicion that he was dealing drugs from his residence and had also been stealing lawnmowers, ATV’s, and motorcycles. The informant’s observations, police surveillance, video of his residence, the GPS tracker on his vehicle, and statements from Cupp’s girlfriend all contributed to the specific and articulable facts giving rise to the suspicion. The police also had reasonable suspicion to believe that Cupp was attempting to move evidence of his unlawful activities from the Bass Road location soon after the police had visited the location in response to a 911 call.” United States v. Cupp, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 28492 (N.D.Ind. March 7, 2016).*

Defendant’s two patdowns were reasonable. The first was a result of warrants out for his arrest, and he was going in the police cruiser. The second came as a result of the officer doing the patdown getting stuck with a syringe in defendant’s pocket. That further search produced meth. State v. Bean, 2016-Ohio-876, 2016 Ohio App. LEXIS 784 (12th Dist. March 7, 2016).*
