US v. Wilson, 11-915

In government's appeal of the lower court's order suppressing evidence of marijuana found following the stop and subsequent search of defendant's vehicle by two tribal police officers, one of whom was cross-designated as a U.S. customs officer, judgment is reversed and remanded, where: 1) the violation of the internal federal policy governing designated customs officers did not violate the Fourth Amendment; 2) the stop and subsequent search comported with the Fourth Amendment because the officers were justified by probable cause; and therefore 3) defendant's suppression motion was granted in error.
