NY2: Inclusion of some unauthorized persons in the list of those to execute the SW doesn’t void it

The search warrant here was directed to local police officers, the state police, and a special operations group of the sheriff’s office which included correctional officers which were not LEOs capable of executing warrants. Their inclusion didn’t void the warrant. People v. Ward, 2020 NY Slip Op 02943, 2020 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 3016 (2d Dept. May 20, 2020).

The officer here had reasonable suspicion to talk to defendant from seeing what was apparently a bag of crack sitting in his lap. The search of defendant’s car was by consent, and the search of his person and other belongings was justified as a search incident. United States v. Mosley, 2020 U.S. App. LEXIS 16095 (3d Cir. May 20, 2020).*
