Search & Seizure – Consensual Encounter – Man In Parked Car – Drugs In Bag

Police had reasonable articulable suspicion to seize defendant and order him out of his car after he three times failed to comply with a police request not to reach down to the floorboard of his car, parked in a motel parking lot where police recently made other drug busts, and the drugs found in a black bag defendant pulled up from the car floorboard need not be suppressed, the Court of Appeals holds.
