W.D.Pa.: SW for drug proceeds properly included jewelry it could have been converted to

A search warrant for drug proceeds properly included jewelry that the officer, in his experience, believed drug traffickers converted cash to. United States v. Thomas, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 65553 (W.D. Pa. Apr. 5, 2021).

The officer here saw a Crown Royal bag partially sticking out of a flat safe in the back seat area of defendant’s car. Her experience that Crown Royal bags “more often than not” contain drug paraphernalia was a reasonable basis to extend the stop with reasonable suspicion. State v. Cash, 2021 Kan. LEXIS 36 (Apr. 2, 2021).*

A controlled by with a CI was probable cause for defendant’s stop. United States v. Idleman, 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 9780 (4th Cir. Apr. 5, 2021).
