M.D.La.: Car could be searched when it was stopped near home being searched with SW

“[O]fficers were entitled to search the car pursuant to the warrant because Defendant was stopped within the immediate vicinity of his residence.” United States v. Clayton, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 116345 (M.D. La. June 30, 2022).*

During a traffic stop, when the officer asked if defendant had anything illegal on him, the officer had already discovered an arrest warrant, so the question did not add to the stop. United States v. Smith, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 18253 (10th Cir. July 1, 2022).*

There was probable cause defendant was in actual physical control of his vehicle after it was found stopped. State v. Ballenger, 2022 OK CR 11, 2022 Okla. Crim. App. LEXIS 11 (June 30, 2022).* [11 criminal appeals in six months?]
