D.Minn.: Traffic stop led to PC by plain view

There was probable cause for a stop, and that quickly developed into probable cause to search from marijuana residue around the driver’s seat. United States v. Estes, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 41951 (D.Minn. Mar. 8, 2022).*

Possession of a large quantity of meth doesn’t create automatic nexus to defendant’s home [but it can be close]. Here, there was information from a CI that added to that inference. United States v. Melvin, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 42092 (M.D.Pa. Mar. 9, 2022).*

Probable cause for plaintiff’s arrest was shown, and that defeats his false arrest claim. Henderson v. McClain, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 6155 (4th Cir. Mar. 9, 2022);* Ramirez v. City of Glendale, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 6220 (9th Cir. Mar. 10, 2022).*

Defendant’s search was valid as a parole search. He did not show unreasonableness that it was done by personal animus or to harass. United States v. Shelton, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 6159 (6th Cir. Mar. 8, 2022).*
