CA3: Going from home to a drug deal is nexus to the home

“Contrary to Torres’ arguments, when an individual is suspected of dealing narcotics, probable cause to search his home does not demand a showing that he deals those narcotics at his home. The common-sense likelihood that drug dealers keep evidence of their trade where they reside, combined with Torres’s twice-observed trek from 66 Church Street directly to the meeting point with the CI, was sufficient to establish probable cause.” United States v. Torres, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 1425 (3d Cir. Jan. 20, 2023).*

Presence at execution of a warrant of an FBI contractor assisting in forfeitures did not violate 18 U.S.C. § 3105 or the Fourth Amendment. He was there to identify forfeitable things. United States v. Delgado, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 9696 (N.D. Ill. Jan. 20, 2023).*
