Search & Seizure – Residential Visit – K-9 Officer – ‘Drug House’ Tip

An officer who responded with a K-9 drug dog to a Newport News home said to be a “known drug house” did not conduct an illegal search when the dog made a “positive alert” at the home’s front door, and the alert and the “numerous empty corner bags” commonly used to package illegal drugs in the front yard supported issuance of a search warrant, a Newport News Circuit Court holds.
Commonwealth v. Taliaferro (Newport News Cir.Ct.) (VLW 008-8-204) (6 pp.)
