IL: Truck inspection search was with RS from suspect log book and wrong seal and locks on cargo door

The truck inspection officer here had reasonable suspicion because the log book looked like it was false, there was an unnecessary private seal on the trailer, and the lock was on the wrong door meaning the load wasn’t protected. Two questions about travel and rate of pay didn’t add to the stop. People v. Bujari, 2020 IL App (3d) 190028, 2020 Ill. App. LEXIS 55 (Feb. 3, 2020).*

Defendant had no DL, and the officer ordered him out of the car. The bulge in his pants justified a frisk for weapons, and none were found. Getting the drug dog there was reasonable because the officer could also smell “the faint odor of marijuana.” State v. Carero, 2020 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 63 (Feb. 3, 2020).*

COA denied on petitioner’s search issue for lack of standing. Rogers v. Sec’y, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 3416 (11th Cir. Feb. 4, 2020).*
