MO: Def’s talking too fast and not looking as good as DL photo isn’t RS

The state trooper’s focus on defendant’s purse had nothing to do with the traffic stop, and it extended the stop. Her talking fast and not looking as good as the DL photo is not reasonable suspicion. The trial court’s suppression order is affirmed. State v. Goucher, 2019 Mo. App. LEXIS 1178 (July 30, 2019).

Defendant didn’t show that the officers who entered to arrest on an arrest warrant intended to search, too. They had a dog, but the dog didn’t come in. The pre-search briefing mentioned the possibility of firearms inside, but that was for safety concerns, not that they were going to search. United States v. Hernandez-Mieses, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 22759 (1st Cir. July 31, 2019).*
