SD: There was reason for def’s stop, but no PC for search of the car

There was reason for defendant’s stop and reasonable suspicion developed from excessive nervousness and a masking agent, but there was no probable cause and exigency for a search of defendant’s car. State v. Terry, 2019 Del. Super. LEXIS 431 (Sept. 10, 2019).

The traffic stop was justified by probable cause of a traffic offense, and the officer could order him out of the car during the stop. Running computer checks during the stop is reasonable and didn’t unreasonably extend the stop. United States v. Ford, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 156788 (E.D. Mo. Aug. 2, 2019),* adopted, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 155772 (E.D. Mo. Sept. 12, 2019).*
