WY: Pending drug case is not RS, but it is “a piece of the puzzle”

The collective knowledge of two officers justified this stop. One defendant’s pending drug case was not reasonable suspicion itself, but it was “a piece of the puzzle.” Guandong v. State, 2022 WY 83, 2022 Wyo. LEXIS 83 (June 28, 2022).

A search under a drug possession statute held unconstitutional four years later was reasonable at the time under Michigan v. DeFillippo. State v. Moses, 2022 Wash. App. LEXIS 1341 (June 27, 2022).

The officer intended to do an inventory search, but defendant’s admission there was marijuana in the car give probable cause. State v. Jones, 2022 Ind. App. LEXIS 218 (June 27, 2022).*
