United States v. Anguiano, No. 18-2154 (8th Cir. 2019)Annotate this Case
The Eighth Circuit affirmed the district court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress evidence on the ground that his arrest and subsequent searches of his hotel room and vehicle violated his Fourth Amendment rights. The court held that the evidence taken as a whole provided ample support for the district court's finding that the officers would have applied for a warrant without the illegal search. The court also held that there was also probable cause to support issuance of the search warrant even without information gleaned from the initial search.
