OH6: Leaving house to do a drug deal and going back home right after is inference drugs at home

The affiant’s allegation that defendant left his house to conduct drug deals then returned there right afterward creates a reasonable inference that drugs are kept in the house. Thus, there was probable cause for the search warrant. State v. Pettaway, 2018-Ohio-4241, 2018 Ohio App. LEXIS 4577 (6th Dist. Oct. 19, 2018).

Indiana’s more stringent constitutional requirement for car searches didn’t impose any higher standard on inventory searches after seizure for forfeiture. Ector v. State, 2018 Ind. App. LEXIS 376 (Oct. 19, 2018).
