CA5: Car could be towed and inventoried rather than left at gas pumps

Officers observed two traffic violations and stopped him at gas pumps. An old arrest warrant surfaced. Leaving the car at the gas pump was not reasonable–it could be towed and inventoried. United States v. Walker, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 26405 (5th Cir. Sep. 21, 2022).

What proved to be a false positive field test for drugs in a CBP stopped shipment that ended up in a search warrant affidavit was not a Franks violation. The search produced other evidence of crime. United States v. Hunt, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 170910 (D. Neb. Sep. 21, 2022).

Driving suspiciously in the parking lot of closed businesses in the early hours of Thanksgiving morning with other things. United States v. Helton, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 170553 (E.D. Ky. Sep. 21, 2022).*

Defendant’s motion for a bill of particulars is denied. The 66 page affidavit for the search warrant sets out the government’s whole case. United States v. Castro, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 170485 (D. Nev. Sep. 20, 2022).
