Oral Argument: Friday, February 11, 2005 4:00pm

Docket Info

Title
State of North Dakota, Plaintiff and Appellee
v.
Randy Nelson, Defendant and Appellant
Case Type
CRIMINAL APPEAL : DRUGS/CONTRABAND
Appeal From
Case No. 03-K-01257
South Central Judicial District, Grant County
Bruce B. Haskell
2005 ND 59693 N.W.2d 910

Highlight

If an application for a search warrant contains statements intentionally false or made with reckless disregard for the truth, the false material must be set aside, and if the remaining content is insufficient to establish probable cause, the warrant must be voided and the fruits of the search excluded.
To establish probable cause for a search, there must be a nexus between the place to be searched and the contraband sought.
Mere suspicion that criminal activity is taking place which may warrant further investigation does not rise to a level of probable cause to search.
