US v. Lemus, No. 08-50403
Defendant's firearm possession conviction is affirmed where the district court properly denied defendant's motion to suppress the firearm at issue because the area in which the police officers discovered the incriminating evidence immediately adjoined the place of arrest, and thus the officers were justified in conducting a search of that area without either probable cause or reasonable suspicion.
