LA5: CI’s story provided PC for defendant’s stop for a hand-to-hand transaction police then observed

The CI provided probable cause for defendant’s stop for a hand-to-hand transaction. The CI’s story was that was what was going down, and defendant came up to the car and leaned in. While the officers didn’t see what happened in the car, that fit the CI’s story. Officers followed and stopped him later. State v. Bardell, 2017 La. App. LEXIS 2089 (La.App. 5 Cir. Nov. 15, 2017).*

The I-19 immigration checkpoint between Nogales and Tucson is constitutional [probably for the 100th time]. It complies with every court’s standards. United States v. Audelo-Marquez, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 190652 (D. Ariz. Sept. 5, 2017).*
