D.Ariz.: Hiding in the bushes near a pre-school near the Mexico border justified stop

Defendant was with another hiding in the bushes by a pre-school really near the border. Also, sensors had gone off showing that there were people there. When officers showed up, they started walking. When stopped, they were nervous and fidgety and their answers to questions were suspicious. The stop was lawful. United States v. Corral-Cinco, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 151227 (D.Ariz. Sept. 6, 2016),* adopted, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 151228 (D. Ariz. Oct. 31, 2016).*

Defendant was in custody at the time he consented, but that doesn’t make the consent involuntary. United States v. Calmese, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 151063 (E.D.Mo. Nov. 1, 2016).*
