Defendant was on probation out of Utah and supervised in Louisiana. His PO received information that he might have child pornography on his cell phone. During a PO visit, he was told to get his cell phone and computer out of his vehicle, and he did. He’d signed a blanket search waiver in Utah and that applied in Louisiana. State v. Haley, 2017 La. App. LEXIS 942 (La.App. 2 Cir. May 24, 2017).
The named CI was corroborated by the independent observation and work of the officer leading up to a drug transaction. There was probable cause, especially when defendant discarded the drugs. State v. Williams, 2017 La. App. LEXIS 956 (La.App. 3 Cir. May 24, 2017).*
