TX1: 911 call about a suspected kidnapping led to a stop found valid under Naverette

A 911 call about a suspected kidnapping led to a stop found valid under Naverette. Small v. State, 2023 Tex. App. LEXIS 4610 (Tex. App. – Houston (1st Dist.) June 29, 2023)* (unpublished)

“These events establish probable cause, especially when considered with the events from a week prior. The Affidavit describes a known drug runner calling a known drug dealer right before arriving at and leaving Robelin’s house—leaving a reasonable officer to conclude that evidence of drug crimes would be found there.” United States v. Robelin, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 111536 (E.D. Mich. June 28, 2023).*

The search of the fanny pack here was reasonable under inventory. United States v. Schley, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 111712 (W.D. Wash. June 26, 2023).*

A general Franks challenge fails for a lack of an offer of proof that probable cause would be lacking. He complains of “inconsistencies” and “embellishments” and omissions. “It is difficult to determine from his brief which particular omissions he contends should have been included in the affidavit. Nor does appellant explain in his brief how probable cause is lacking with any missing information added to the affidavit.” Edwards v. State, 2023 Tex. App. LEXIS 4615 (Tex. App. – Houston (14th Dist. June 29, 2023).*
