D.Mont.: Destruction of a lockbox to search it was not unreasonable

Damaging a lockbox to open it under a search warrant was not unreasonable and doesn’t require suppression of its contents. Destruction of property is sometimes required to execute a search warrant: Dalia v. United States. United States v. Boeke, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 143127 (D. Mont. Aug. 23, 2019).

The anticipatory search warrant for two packages from Las Vegas to New Hampshire was with probable cause and was particular. United States v. Moss, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 25573 (1st Cir. Aug. 26, 2019).*
