NC: Def outside cleaning his car when police showed up for drug raid couldn’t be detained under Summers

When the police showed up to search the premises, defendant was outside cleaning his car. His detention cannot be justified by Summers as a known recent occupant of the premises. His conviction is reversed. State v. Thompson, 2019 N.C. App. LEXIS 703 (Aug. 20, 2019).

There was a fair probability on the totality of information that drugs would be found at the location searched, so there was probable cause for issuance of the search warrant. State v. Bailey, 2019 N.C. App. LEXIS 705 (Aug. 20, 2019).*
