D.Neb.: A child locked in a basement while a party was going on upstairs was exigency

A concerned citizen called the police to report a small child was locked in his neighbor’s basement, and there was a party going on in the house. When police got there they entered without a warrant based on exigency. United States v. Parker, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 51889 (D. Neb. Mar. 28, 2019).

The product of intel on defendant’s tractor trailer allegedly repeatedly driving from Texas to Georgia empty, with a court ordered tracking device on it, with a hidden compartment coupled with defendant’s vague answers during a stop led to an inspection of the padlocked truck. Also, if it was empty, it’s suspicious it was padlocked. United States v. Sakapala, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 52941 (N.D. Ga. Mar. 28, 2019).*
