The court finds defendant consented to a search of his bag on a bus by a shrug of his shoulders. United States v. Salas-Lopez, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 212709 (W.D. Mo. Nov. 16, 2017), adopted, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 212286 (W.D. Mo. Dec. 28, 2017).

“The specificity of the vehicle description, the reference to seizure of drug proceeds, and the attestations of a nexus between the vehicle and drug proceeds lead us to conclude the constitutional particularity requirement was satisfied.” State v. Ford, 2017 Iowa App. LEXIS 1264 (Dec. 20, 2017).*

AFOSI CI’s controlled buy from defendant was probable cause for issuance of a search warrant for his house. The CI went to defendant’s house and made the buy. People v. Gallo, 2017 Guam 24, 2017 Guam LEXIS 23 (Dec. 29, 2017).*
