People v. Collier, B207163

In a prosecution for carrying a concealed firearm as a convicted felon and possessing a controlled substance, order denying motion to suppress is affirmed where: 1) trial court correctly reasonably ruled that there were specific and articulable facts to conduct a limited pat down based on officer safety and the presence of drugs; and 2) the pat-down was reasonably necessary because the officers had probable cause to search the car interior and had decided to do so.
