US v. Thurman, 09-3545

Defendant's conviction for unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition as a previously convicted felon is affirmed where: 1) despite an officer's conclusory statement, so long as the issuing magistrate can fairly infer the source and basis of the information in a warrant application, the magistrate permissibly may consider such an assertion when determining whether probable cause exists; and 2) the warrant contained sufficient information to identify the particular frame house at issue as the premises to be searched.
