FL2: Anonymous calls about a pick-up truck driving slowly around the block in the middle of the night in a residential low crime area wasn’t RS

Officers received two anonymous calls about a dark pickup truck with a loud muffler on a residential street in the middle of the night. Once it stopped in the street for a few seconds and then pulled off and turned a corner. This was not a high crime area nor an area known for drug dealing. There was no reasonable suspicion for the stop. Allenbrand v. State, 2019 Fla. App. LEXIS 16910 (Fla. 2d DCA Nov. 13, 2019).*

The new crime exception to the exclusionary rule is well recognized under the Fourth Amendment, and the court adopts it under the state constitution, too. State v. Serrano, 2019 Ind. App. LEXIS 486 (Nov. 13, 2019).

The stop of defendant’s car at a McDonald’s drive through was reasonable because officers had an objectively reasonable belief that one Connor was driving the car. Instead, it was defendant who hit another car trying to elude the officers approaching him. United States v. Crosdale, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 196677 (W.D. Mo. Sept. 24, 2019).*
