By FindLaw Staff on October 30, 2009 8:13 AM

District court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress evidence of crack cocaine found in his back jean pocket during a Terry stop is affirmed where: 1) officers had probable cause to stop defendant's vehicle; 2) officers had reasonable suspicion of safety risk for a Terry frisk; and 3) once the officer saw the crack containers in plain view, he had probable cause to seize the contraband and arrest defendant.
