D.Md.: Nexus shown by def’s car driven to drug deal was registered at his house and he left there to do the deal

Defendant was alleged to have left the address his car was registered at to go to a controlled buy. That showed nexus to the house. United States v. Goldsberry, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 199446 (D. Md. Dec. 4, 2017).

Defendant had been investigated by the Kodiak police for seven years prior and had a wealth of information that defendant was a dealer. When an anonymous caller called with detailed information about defendant’s activities, it fit with everything they already knew, and it provided probable cause because of the pattern of conduct. Matthews v. State, 2017 Alas. App. LEXIS 198 (Dec. 6, 2017) (memorandum) (Alaska still applies Aguilar-Spinneli and not Gates).*
