E.D.Va.: Police remote surveillance of apt building parking lot led to RS for stop

Officers saw an Instagram video at 5 am, posted about two hours earlier, of suspects holding high capacity rifles and handguns. They recognized the apartment building, and they had remote access to the apartment complex’s videos provided by the landlord to help abate violence there. They drove to the scene and found vehicles and persons in the video, and that was justification for a frisk. United States v. McCullers, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 47258 (E.D.Va. Mar. 16, 2022).*

Defendant’s stop for going 2 over the speed limit and having a heavily cracked windshield was reasonable. “Even if some of Trooper Harman’s questions had impermissibly extended the scope of the traffic stop, that would not automatically entitle Defendant to suppression as a remedy.” “The Government demonstrates—and Defendant does not contest—that Defendant’s consent was voluntary.” United States v. Martinez, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 47083 (N.D.Ga. Feb. 23, 2022).*
