Possession of a firearm is an ongoing offense, and passage of time alone doesn’t make it stale. United States v. Morelock, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 225737 (N.D. Ga. Dec. 9, 2019), adopted, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 12596 (N.D. Ga. Jan. 27, 2020).
Defendant is accused of stealing $150,000 of specialized equipment from a truck. The police tracked him to his home after the goods were for sale on Facebook and the victim confirmed it. “Under the circumstances outlined above, this court readily concludes that the affidavit submitted in support of the search warrant in this case sufficiently established a reasonable basis to conclude that Conway lived at 5600 Carmichael Road, Apartment 2321, Montgomery, Alabama and that he was in possession of contraband that was of the type that one would normally expect to be hidden there — a place ‘to which easy access may be had and in which privacy is nevertheless maintained.’” United States v. Grier, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 14082 (M.D. Ala. Jan. 7, 2020),* adopted, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 12755 (M.D. Ala. Jan. 27, 2020).*
