W.D.N.C.: Search under automobile exception can be as broad as a SW would allow considering what is sought

When there is probable cause under the automobile exception, the search can be as broad as a search warrant would allow. United States v. Carmichael, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 116946 (W.D.N.C. July 1, 2024).

The protective sweep of defendant’s hotel room wasn’t justified, but removing the results from the affidavit for warrant still leaves probable cause. United States v. Crow, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 116537 (W.D.N.C. May 23, 2024).*

“Because reasonable suspicion to seize the package existed based on the February 28 phone call and Williams’s prior criminal activity, we need not consider whether the district court made erroneous factual findings.” United States v. Williams, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 16127 (7th Cir. July 2, 2024).*
