CA7: Target of SW doesn’t have to be suspected of crime

A target of a search warrant does not have to be suspected of a crime. A holder of “mere evidence” can be subjected to a search warrant. United States v. Roland, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 4987 (7th Cir. Mar. 1, 2023).

The record supported the district court’s finding that the officer smelled marijuana and that was reason to continue the stop. United States v. Conley, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 5120 (5th Cir. Mar. 2, 2023).*

The district court’s determination of the credibility of officer on the basis for the stop is unassailable on appeal. United States v. Rutledge, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 5156 (8th Cir. Mar. 3, 2023).*
