D.Minn.: This wasn’t a case of guilt by association for being near a drug dealer; officers reasonably believed drug deal occurred

This was not a case of mere propinquity to a drug dealer causing defendant’s frisk. Based on the officer’s training and experience, the officers could fairly conclude that there was a drug deal going on and not just a casual conversation. United States v. Tucker, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 213594 (D. Minn. Dec. 19, 2018).*

Defendant’s running a stop sign was justification for his stop. The smell of burnt marijuana was coming from defendant’s person and car, and that justified a search. United States v. Kelley, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 213306 (W.D. La. Dec. 3, 2018),* adopted, 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 213096 (W.D. La. Dec. 18, 2018).*
