CA11: The exact description in the SW was incorrect, but the attachment cured it

“Importantly, the warrant itself refers only to ‘[t]he premises located at: 1701 Bainbridge Avenue, Pensacola, Florida 32507.’ Although Attachment A incorrectly attributes that address to the trailer, the photo and description support the conclusion that the trailer and building are part of a single, covered property. The description notes both structures are on one lot. It also records the presence of ‘a wooden fence that connects the single-wide trailer to the large block building.’ Finally, the description identifies a shared ‘green mailbox located directly in front of the large block building.’ We agree, given these facts, with the district court’s conclusion that the property covered by the first warrant included the building.” United States v. Goodfleisch, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 3038 (11th Cir. Feb. 6, 2018).

Defendant was visiting a friend who was on probation. The PO and a police officer came because the friend “was not doing very well on probation.” The friend consented to entry, and defendant was inside with meth. A woman was also playing darts with a gun on her hip. The entry was by valid consent. State v. McIntire, 2018 Iowa App. LEXIS 113 (Feb. 7, 2018).*
