CA8: SW not needed for parked car just driven there

A dog alert on a parked Yukon did not require a search warrant before the search. It was parked on the property of a storage facility, and it was just driven to that spot while officers were getting a warrant for defendant’s storage unit. United States v. Barron, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 7278 (8th Cir. Mar. 21, 2022).

The CI’s information was not the only thing the officers had–they also had three days of surveillance. The CI was merely corroborative. There was probable cause. United States v. Lynch, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 49010 (N.D.Okla. Mar. 18, 2022).*

There was reasonable suspicion for defendant’s stop. “Regardless whether a traffic stop is actuated by a law enforcement officer’s safety-related concerns or their suspicions of criminal activity, the test of reasonable suspicion is the same.” State v. Ramos, 2022-Ohio-886, 2022 Ohio App. LEXIS 781 (3d Dist. Mar. 21, 2022).*
