CA7: Controlled buy corroborated CI

“Although the factors [on CI reliability] go both ways, on balance they support the CI’s reliability. Most significantly, the deputies corroborated the CI’s story with their own investigation by conducting surveillance and executing a controlled buy.” United States v. Haynes, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 3380 (7th Cir. Feb. 14, 2018).*
