D.N.M.: Def’s car’s impoundment wasn’t justified by community caretaking function or need for inventory

The impoundment of defendant’s car wasn’t justified by either the community caretaking function or need for inventory. Whether the vehicle was even involved in a crime was inconclusive at best. United States v. Trujillo, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 201024 (D. N.M. Nov. 20, 2019).*

Defendant’s stop was justified because the officer believed he saw the butt of a gun in his waistband and that defendant was a felon. United States v. Brown, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 200996 (D.Mass. Nov. 20, 2019).*
