D.Neb.: Omitting that there was no prior indication of drug dealing from anticipatory SW application not material

Omitting from the affidavit for an anticipatory warrant that there was no prior indication of drug dealing at the location isn’t material for Franks purposes. United States v. Espinoza, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 39195 (D.Neb. Jan. 28, 2022). [There’s always a first time.]

”The temporal proximity, the lack of intervening circumstances, and the lack of justification for the seizure all show that the abandonment resulted from the illegal seizure. Cadichon had no reasonable articulable suspicion for the warrantless seizure of McClendon and Poe. We find Cadichon illegally seized McClendon and Poe when he pointed his gun at them and ordered them to stay.” People v. McClendon, 2022 IL App (1st) 163406, 2022 Ill. App. LEXIS 106 (Mar. 7, 2022).*

A controlled buy by a CS is probable cause. United States v. Floyd, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 39440 (M.D.Ala. Mar. 7, 2022).*
