OH: While affidavit for SW may have been deficient, it was supplemented by testimony and it was reasonable to find PC

While the affidavit itself may have been deficient on showing probable cause, the officer provided the issuing magistrate additional information to supplement it. Thus, the officer reasonably relied upon the warrant in good faith. Trial court erred in suppressing. State v. Dibble, 2020-Ohio-546, 2020 Ohio LEXIS 458 (Feb. 20, 2020).

There was sufficient information in the affidavit for search warrant connecting defendant to a robbery scheme to be probable cause. He argues more detail was required, but not so because there is sufficient information here to conclude he was involved. United States v. Goldsby, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 28502 (D. Nev. Feb. 19, 2020).*
