DE: PC and nexus to search def’s house came from his leaving to do a drug deal on a bicycle and then coming right back

There was probable cause and nexus to search defendant’s house because he left the house on a bicycle to conduct a drug delivery and returned. Spencer v. State, 2018 Del. LEXIS 296 (June 26, 2018).

There was probable cause to search defendant’s vehicle from defendant’s discarding drugs from the vehicle before he punched the officer and then a dog alerted on it. State v. Perry, 2018 La. App. LEXIS 1279 (La. App. 5 Cir. June 27, 2018).*

The officer had reasonable suspicion to stop defendant at 4 am in a commercial district recently subjected to burglaries: “As already mentioned, these circumstances included: the recent burglaries in the area; Ford’s suspicious behavior when he saw the patrol car; the ‘odd bags’ [including a pink purse] Ford was carrying; Sergeant Smith’s knowledge of Ford’s criminal history; and Smith’s knowledge that Ford did not live nearby and had no obvious reason for being in this commercial district at this time of night.” Ford v. State, 2018 Alas. App. LEXIS 125 (June 27, 2018) (memorandum).*
