D.P.R.: Just being a driver of vehicle doesn’t give standing; two traffic tickets in past in vehicle not enough

Defendant at the suppression hearing showed no possessory interest in the vehicle he claimed not to own at the time of the stop and search. Two traffic tickets in the past driving the same vehicle wasn’t enough. United States v. Morales-Torres, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 57131 (D. P.R. March 14, 2017), adopted, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 57809 (D.P.R. Apr. 13, 2017).

The search of defendant’s property was on reasonable suspicion of his using methamphetamine, and he and his father specifically consented to this search. United States v. Wolff, 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 187805 (D.N.D. March 18, 2015).*
