NE: Search of the person here was valid an an inventory at the jail

The search of defendant’s person at the jail after his arrest was valid as an inventory search. State v. Garcia, 302 Neb. 406 (Mar. 8, 2019).

“As set forth above, the undersigned does not agree with Defendant that the affidavit was inadequate to establish probable cause. However, even if that point is debatable, it is not debatable that the warrant was so lacking in any indicia of probable cause that the executing officers could not reasonably rely upon the neutral magistrate’s determination that probable cause existed. Nor is it arguable—at least based upon what Defendant has presented—that Agent Thompson misled Judge Moorer by providing inaccurate or incomplete information. Accordingly, even if probable cause were lacking in Judge Moorer’s determination to issue a warrant, the Leon good faith exception to the exclusionary rule applies ….” United States v. McCoy, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 35820 (M.D. Ala. Mar. 6, 2019).*
