Pollard v. State

Facts:

After a police officer issued a warning ticket to defendant for speeding, the officer did a drug scan of defendant’s automobile. The officer found heroin.  Defendant was ultimately convicted of possession of heroin.  On appeal, the court found that the trial court erred in denying defendant’s motion to suppress evidence of the drugs found by the police officer during the drug scan.

Holdings:

The Maryland Court made the following holding:
  • Although the duration of a stop is a factor in calculating whether an intrusion is within constitutional limitations, the state must first demonstrate a reasonable, articulable suspicion that a crime is being or is about to be committed. Additionally, stopping an automobile and detaining its occupants constitute a “seizure” within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment, even though the purpose of the stop is limited and the resulting detention quite brief.
  • The brevity of invasion of an individual’s Fourth Amendment interests is an important factor in determining whether a seizure is so minimally intrusive as to be justifiable on reasonable suspicion.
