N.D.Ga.: First class mail is closed to Customs inspection; priority mail is not

There is a reasonable expectation of privacy in first class mail and mail with full postage from a customs search coming into the Virgin Islands. 19 C.F.R. § 145.1. Priority class mail is subject to customs inspection. United States v. France, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 98000 (N.D. Ga. June 4, 2020).

A search warrant for small digital devices, as small as a postage stamp, authorized search of a safe in the place to be searched because that’s a likely place for where they could be concealed. That also included manipulating a silencer. United States v. Presson, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 98210 (W.D. Mo. June 4, 2020).
