D.S.D.: Photos of defs didn’t match the description of officers where that was part of RS calculus; search suppressed

The USMJ credited the defendants on the reasonable suspicion for continuing the stop based on the photographs of the defendants after their arrest that didn’t match what the officer was relying on for their dress and jewelry. No reasonable suspicion, and the search is suppressed. United States v. Conteh, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 98214 (D. S.D. June 26, 2017),* R&R 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 188053 (D.S.D. May 31, 2016).*

Defendant’s traffic stop led to a valid plain view. United States v. de Santiago-Acosta, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 97769 (D.P.R. June 23, 2017).*
