OR: Def’s driving to a controlled buy was PC for automobile exception; not a “police-created exigency”

Police had probable cause to stop defendant on his way to a controlled buy. This did not qualify as a “police-created exigency.” State v. Colman-Pinning, 302 Ore. App. 383 (Feb. 26, 2020).

Appellant “seeks appellate relief based on a single complaint: the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress data found on his cell phone. Because appellant abandoned the cell phone in his open car when he fled from the police, we conclude he lacked standing to challenge the constitutionality of the cell-phone search.” Wiltz v. State, 2020 Tex. App. LEXIS 1677 (Tex. App. – 14th Dist. (Houston) Feb. 27, 2020).

Crashing one’s car and running from it, leaving stuff behind, is an abandonment of all of it. United States v. Espinoza-Reynosa, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 33660 (D. Minn. Feb. 27, 2020).
