E.D.La.: Not every detail needs be included in affidavit; omissions here only would bolster PC

Defendants had standing in packages shipped to them under assumed names. As to the affidavit: “In terms of any omissions, neither the omission of the statistics on the “profile,” nor the omission of information on the dogs’ reliability, warrants the conclusion that the good-faith exception should not apply. This follows because there would still be probable cause even if the information were included.” “The same is true for any omitted information regarding the drug-detecting dogs’ reliability. The affidavits both note that the dogs, Boris and Spike, were trained to alert to the presence of drugs and have been certified within a year of the search.” United States v. Bogen, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 16716 (E.D. La. Feb. 7, 2017).
