Criminal Law: Unreasonable Search-GPS Tracker

Where a defendant challenged warrants for the installation of GPS trackers, the affidavits supporting each warrant application provided probable cause to believe that the defendant was involved in drug trafficking, and supporting affidavits established that confidential informants had a record of providing reliable information, and the evidence in the applications was not stale, and the district court did not err in denying the defendant’s motion to suppress.

Judgment is affirmed.

U.S. v. Petruk (MLW No. 73538/Case No. 17-3823 – 13 pages) (U.S. Court of Appeals, 8th Circuit, Kelly, J.) Appealed from U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota. (Mark D. Nyvold, Fridley, Minnesota, argued for appellant) (Allen A. Slaughter Jr., Minneapolis, argued for appellee).
