CT: Police wait for def to attempt to retrieve sawed off shotgun in backyard was still exigency

The police had a reasonable belief defendant had used a sawed off shotgun to threaten someone and that it was likely in his backyard. They waited for him to reappear to attempt to recover the gun, and when he did, they moved in. This was with exigent circumstances and was reasonable. State v. Ingala, 2020 Conn. App. LEXIS 239 (July 21, 2020).*

The search of defendant’s glove was by consent. Whether the automobile exception applied, didn’t matter. State v. Satita, 306 Neb. 499 (July 17, 2020).*
