N.D.Ga.: PC shown for cell phone and geo-location data

“The Geo-Location Warrant was supported by probable cause because the affidavit established ‘a connection between the defendant and the location to be searched; a link between the location and criminal activity; and the informant’s veracity and basis of knowledge.’” There was also probable cause as to his phone. United States v. Troup, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 90210 (N.D. Ga. May 11, 2021).

The affidavit for the cell phone search warrant established probable cause. It was alleged that the phone had been used in setting up other drug transactions and a drug robbery. United States v. Martinez, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 89972 (S.D. N.Y. May 11, 2021).*

Defendant is incorrect that he was ordered to stop by the police. The court finds defendant was merely asked to talk to them. Reasonable suspicion developed thereafter that defendant might have been involved in a shooting. United States v. Duarte, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 90177 (N.D. Ill. May 12, 2021).*

There was reasonable suspicion for the officer to encounter a person in a “park and ride” lot where cars might be there at night but people with them usually were up to no good. Here, the person was acting “secretively.” Johnson v. State, 2021 Tex. Crim. App. LEXIS 434 (May 12, 2021).*
