S.D.Ind.: Once there’s an indictment, a motion to suppress evidence is used rather than a motion for return of property

“Where, as here, an indictment has been filed and criminal proceedings are ongoing, the proper means for seeking return of seized property and to challenge the constitutionality of a search is a motion to suppress evidence.” United States v. Flick, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 31742 (S.D. Ind. Feb. 28, 2019).

There was probable cause for the search warrant of defendant’s package in transit, and his motion to dismiss is denied. United States v. Spurlock, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 31877 (M.D. La. Feb. 28, 2019).*
