D.Nev.: The fact the officers claimed to smell marijuana but didn’t find any doesn’t mean they were lying

It was testified that the car smelled like burnt marijuana. The fact none was found doesn’t indicate that officers were lying. United States v. Davila, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 42805 (D. Nev. Jan. 31, 2019),* adopted, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 42308 (D. Nev. Mar. 13, 2019).*

The anticipatory warrant for defendant’s house was valid, and there was reasonable suspicion for stop of his car. United States v. Stiff, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 43594 (E.D. Mo. Mar. 18, 2019).*

Defendant has not satisfied Franks’s “heavy burden” of showing that false statements in the affidavit for the search warrant influenced the finding of probable cause. United States v. Hurley, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 44902 (N.D. Ohio Mar. 19, 2019).*
