US v. Oliver, 09-10133

Defendant's conviction for aiding and abetting mail fraud and aggravated identity theft is affirmed where the initial private search, which was reasonably foreseeable, and the searcher’s act, later that day, of voluntarily giving authorities defendant's box, in which no reasonable expectation of privacy remained, rendered the subsequent police search permissible under the Fourth Amendment.
