D.N.M.: RS not needed for questions at a fixed immigration checkpoint

Defendant’s questioning about his work at a fixed immigration checkpoint did not require reasonable suspicion. United States v. Briscoe, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 181188 (D.N.M. Oct. 6, 2023).

There was reasonable suspicion for defendant’s stop at gunpoint for his being apparently intoxicated and carrying a long gun and pointing it in public with both hands in a “low ready” position. United States v. Bethea, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 181240 (M.D.N.C. Oct. 6, 2023).*

There was probable cause for issuance of a cell site location warrant on defendant’s phone because he was otherwise linked to a murder. “The information that law enforcement gathered at the shooting scene generated probable cause to believe that the Defendant was the perpetrator and now a fugitive given the details provided by the Witness. And additional independent investigation by law enforcement connected the Defendant’s WhatsApp number to the Phone Number and to the Defendant. Therefore, the affidavit submitted with the Warrant application set forth sufficient facts for the circuit court judge to conclude there was probable cause that the Defendant was the shooter.” United States v. MacKie, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 181294 (S.D. Fla. Oct. 9, 2023).*
