W.D.Pa.: Typo that SW had to be served same day it was issued could be overlooked

Typo on a search warrant that it had to be executed the same day it was issued could be overlooked. It was issued mid-afternoon; it clearly didn’t require that the probable cause would cease to exist at 11:59 pm that same day. United States v. Wygant, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 112167 (W.D. Pa. July 8, 2019).

Defendant was followed for no apparent reason, but one wasn’t needed. The registration was expired so the car was stopped. While working on that, a drug dog was called, arrived, and alerted before the registration issue was resolved. Therefore, the dog sniff didn’t extend the stop. United States v. Betancourt, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 112302 (S.D. Ohio July 8, 2019).*
