S.D.Ohio: Def was seized by blocking his car in, even if officers didn’t intend it

Defendant’s vehicle was blocked in by a police car, and a reasonable person would only believe he’d been seized whether the officers believed it or not. This was not justified by reasonable suspicion. His consent was thus not voluntary. “None of the exceptions to the exclusionary rule apply here to prevent suppression.” United States v. Rodgers, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 111117 (S.D.Ohio June 22, 2022).

Officers had reasonable suspicion defendant was involved in a credit card skimming scheme when they stopped him at a gas pump. United States v. Rodriguez, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 110217 (D. Mass. June 22, 2022).*

A drug search warrant led to probable cause defendant was involved in home invasion robberies, and that supported a second search warrant for evidence of that. Commonwealth v. Lavin, 2022 Mass. App. LEXIS 58 (June 23, 2022).*

A search warrant was executed here to determine defendant’s height with a tape measure. State v. Matthews, 2022 Md. LEXIS 260 (June 22, 2022).
