US v. Stotler, No. 08-4258

By FindLaw Staff on January 14, 2010 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

District court's conviction of a defendant for attempted possession of pseudoephedrine with intent to manufacture methamphetamine and related crimes is affirmed where: 1) considering the totality of the circumstances, the district judge was correct in finding that probable cause existed to search the truck because it was reasonable to believe that it contained evidence of, at the very least, an attempt to possess materials needed for making meth, and because probable cause existed, the search of the truck was authorized under the automobile exception to the warrant requirement; 2) a security video of defendant purchasing large quantities of pseudoephedrine in another state in 2005 was properly admitted under 404(b) as it was admissible for whatever bearing it might have on a crucial issue in the case, such as defendant's intent on the day of his arrest.
