OH6: 3 controlled buys by 2 CIs was PC; no requirement of showing how they were arranged to happen

Three controlled buys by two CIs was probable cause. There was no showing required of how the drug deals were to be arranged. State v. Reed, 2020-Ohio-138, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 107 (6th Dist. Jan. 17, 2020).*

There was probable cause for arrest from the CI’s statement and the fact that defendant corroborated an important part of it by showing up at the appointed time for a hand off of cash. United States v. Green, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 7373 (C.D. Ill. Jan. 16, 2020).*

There was reasonable suspicion to question defendant for counterfeiting on detailed information from a sales clerk, and defendant’s deflections when questioned only added to the calculus. United States v. Ballance, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 7381 (D.Kan. Jan. 16, 2020).*
