OH9: No RS for first dog sniff which was negative, let alone a second

The state claimed that the officers had reasonable suspicion which wasn’t apparent to the court of appeals. Then a drug dog didn’t alert. That’s when the stop should have ended. The request to have a second dog sniff was unreasonable. State v. King, 2020-Ohio-1312, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 1269 (9th Dist. Apr. 6, 2020).

As the officer approached the stopped vehicle, he saw furtive movements. Defendant was extremely nervous, and the occupants’ stories made no sense. This was reasonable suspicion. United States v. Wilson, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 10664 (8th Cir. Apr. 6, 2020).*

There was probable cause for search of defendant’s car under the automobile exception because of controlled buys. Even if not, inevitable discovery would apply because forfeiture proceedings had already been started. United States v. Mobley, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 10710 (11th Cir. Apr. 6, 2020).*
