D.Kan.: Michigan v. Long search of car on RS for a weapon called “protective sweep”

The officers had reasonable suspicion to believe there was a weapon in the car justifying a “protective sweep” of the car under Michigan v. Long. United States v. Alexander, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 197653 (D. Kan. Nov. 14, 2019).

Defendant apparently lied about his name and the officer also smelled burnt marijuana, and that led to a dog sniff and that was probable cause for a search. United States v. Wright, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 197601 (D. Me. Nov. 14, 2019).*

USPO officers had reasonable suspicion for a search of defendant’s home and person. First, defendant tested positive in a UA. When they went to his house, he was fidgety and unusually nervous, and they had him step outside. A lump in his pocket was $300 in cash and blue latex gloves. That was reasonable suspicion for a search of the house. United States v. Wimer, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 197609 (N.D. W.Va. Nov. 1, 2019).*
