D.N.M.: When PC is based on an IP address, any computer or cell phone on the premises can be the subject of the SW

Any computer or cell phone on the premises can reasonably be believed to have connected to the internet. “Nevertheless, Ms. Laurezo does not cite to any authority that requires a search warrant based on an IP address being used to upload child pornography to be limited to electronic devices belonging only to the subscriber of that IP address.” The facts allegedly omitted from the probable cause statement either were actually there or inferentially there and they weren’t material to undermining probable cause. United States v. Laurezo, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 98367 (D. N.M. June 12, 2019).

“We have reviewed the warrant affidavit and agree with the district court that, even if the warrant was not supported by probable cause, the affidavit contained sufficient indicia of probable cause such that the officer’s reliance on the warrant was objectively reasonable.” United States v. Wellbeloved-Stone, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 17735 (4th Cir. June 13, 2019).*
