WI: Use of a tracking dog in a burglary that led to def’s house was reasonable and in hot pursuit

Police received a 4 am burglary call, and an officer with a dog tracking smell and the officer tracking footprints in the dew on the ground led to defendant’s property. The officer knocked and defendant’s mother let the police in. Inside was defendant, and he had a watch that was from the burglary. The entry on the property was in hot pursuit and the entry into the house was by consent. State v. Ionescu, 2019 Wisc. App. LEXIS 610 (Nov. 13, 2019).

Granting the magistrate’s determination of probable cause the deference it is entitled to, the court finds probable cause for issuance of the search warrant. State v. Young, 2019-Ohio-4639, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 4677 (10th Dist. Nov. 12, 2019).*
