A 911 call from a child on the premises was exigency for going to the door. When the door was open, the police could see through to the backyard that there were marijuana plants growing there. The initial exigency, however, did not extend to going onto the curtilage to look in the backyard, too. Defendant, however, ultimately consented to the entry. United States v. Luke, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 170608 (D.V.I. Sep. 21, 2022).
