US v. CROWLEY, 00-3423, 00-3549, 00-3694

Although police notified delivery services to watch for suspicious packages and contact authorities if they came across any, because there was no evidence that the police controlled, directed, condoned, or acquiesced in UPS driver's independent decision to open package sent to defendants, her actions could not be imputed to the police; thus, motion to suppress was properly denied.
