CA3: Controlled buy moots Franks challenge to CI

The CI’s story was confirmed by two controlled buys. The Franks challenge to the CI fails as to whether it was corroborated or completely immaterial because of the controlled buys. United States v. Carney, 2018 U.S. App. LEXIS 8116 (3d Cir. Mar. 30, 2018).

After a crash, defendant, a passenger in the vehicle, wanted to retrieve her purse when she was free to leave. The officer picked it up from the floorboard, and it was unusually heavy and padlocked, which was unusual. Having found drugs and cash in the car already, the officer seized the purse pending getting a search warrant. The seizure was reasonable under the circumstances. State v. Walls, 290 Ore. App. 735, 2018 Ore. App. LEXIS 356 (Mar. 14, 2018).*
