IN: Even though def called off drug deal with CI at last minute there still was RS

The CI was working off his own charges. The CI had to make several tries to make a deal with defendant, and, when it happened, there was advance planning related by the CI. They also were talking on a cell phone when defendant called off the deal. Still, even without the deal having occurred, there was reasonable suspicion for the stop. Bates-Smith v. State, 2018 Ind. App. LEXIS 276 (Aug. 9, 2018).

Officers with an arrest warrant for defendant had good reason from prior observations to believe that he was on the premises. They called the assistant prosecutor about getting a search warrant, and he said they didn’t need one, and the arrest warrant was good enough under Payton. It was. Stickrod v. State, 2018 Ind. App. LEXIS 273 (Aug. 3, 2018).
