D.Minn.: 5 uncorroborated anonymous callers wasn’t PC

Five anonymous callers claimed defendant was selling drugs. “The Government’s argument is unavailing because, as [USM] Judge Brisbois observed, ‘[i]t is objectively unreasonable for an officer with over 10 years of experience to present a search warrant affidavit to a judge when that affidavit contains only uncorroborated information from anonymous callers.’” United States v. Loud, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 77561 (D. Minn. May 7, 2018).

CI’s information that defendant would start a meth cook that evening was probable cause when it was coupled with information that defendant had amassed the materials, including a lot of pseudoephedrine, including from the state’s “meth check” system. State v. Craw, 2018-Ohio-1769, 2018 Ohio App. LEXIS 1906 (3d Dist. May 7, 2018).*
