D.N.J.: Report of partricularly described man waving pink semi-auto justified stopping def getting on bus

A “concerned citizen’s” report of a particularly described man waving a pink semi-auto handgun was given to an officer on patrol who drove up the street and found defendant minutes later. The officer approached defendant to keep him from getting on a bus, and defendant pulled away and resisted. There was reasonable suspicion on the totality. United States v. Baker, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 221281 (D. N.J. Dec. 19, 2019).*

The detective’s three-month investigation of defendant corroborated the CI and led to at least reasonable suspicion for defendant’s stop for drug trafficking. State v. Shisler, 2019 La. App. LEXIS 2356 (La. App. 4 Cir. Dec. 23, 2019).*
