VA: Consent to look in backpack permitted search of pill bottle

Defendant’s consent to look in his backpack didn’t require separate consent to look in a pill bottle. Lee v. Commonwealth, 2024 Va. App. LEXIS 258 (May 7, 2024).

CBP had reasonable suspicion for the stop of a Jeep meeting four jet skis from Puerto Rico coming to the Virgin Islands in rough seas when they had a tip that’s how drugs would arrive. United States v. Vazquez-Lopez, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 81992 (D.V.I. May 6, 2024).*

Pacing a speeder was reasonable suspicion for a stop. United States v. Pearson, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 82383 (N.D.W. Va. May 6, 2024).* Same: United States v. Jones, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 11111 (4th Cir. May 7, 2024).*

The argument that a protective sweep was necessary is actually mooted by the fact it was a probation search. United States v. Wallace, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 82485 (D. Mont. May 6, 2024).*
