Prado Navarette v. California, 12-9490

Defendants' motion to suppress evidence of marijuana was properly denied, where: 1) defendants' truck was stopped by the highway patrol because it matched the description of a vehicle that a 911 caller had recently reported as having run her off the road; 2) upon approaching the truck, the officers smelled marijuana; 3) the officers found 30 pounds of marijuana upon searching the truck; and 4) the traffic stop complied with the Fourth Amendment because, under the totality of the circumstances, the officer had reasonable suspicion that the truck's driver was intoxicated.
