US v. Albert, No. 07-4193

By FindLaw Staff on September 02, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Defendant's firearm possession conviction is affirmed where the district court properly denied defendant's motion to suppress evidence because: 1) the use of handcuffs by the police was reasonable under the circumstances, coming as it did after the discovery of a controlled substance; 2) the search of defendant's person was reasonable under the circumstances; and 3) the officers had good reason to detain defendant pending further investigation.
