CA5: PO’s information from DEA plus additional facts was RS for probation search

Defendant was on probation for a state drug offense, and he was a good probationer, so his PO was working toward early termination of probation. Then the DEA calls the PO that they suspect him of being involved in drug dealing. Considering the new information with his criminal history, a story during a visit at work about cash on his person that came from a substantial drug dealer when they frisked him at work, allegedly for buying cars, a search of his residence was reasonable under the terms of his probation. United States v. Williams, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 1795 (5th Cir. Jan. 24, 2018).*

Defendant was in a car at the time of finding backpacks in the car. He denied ownership, and thus he had no reasonable expectation of privacy in them. State v. Adams, 2018 ND 18, 2018 N.D. LEXIS 10 (Jan. 22, 2018).*
