M.D.Pa.: Govt’s justification for protective sweep or exigency based entry were speculative so motion to suppress granted

The government contention a protective sweep or exigent circumstances justified the entry was speculative and lacked foundation. Motion to suppress granted. United States v. Lara-Mejia, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 156946 (M.D. Pa. Aug. 28, 2020).

The automobile exception doesn’t apply on the curtilage (Collins), but the court finds this car wasn’t on the curtilage. United States v. Townsend, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 156768 (S.D. W.Va. Aug. 28, 2020).

CI’s corroborated information along with a controlled buy was probable cause. United States v. Rieves, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 156726 (D. Mass. Aug. 28, 2020).*
