State v. Lovett 2015 ME 7

Defendant was charged with unlawful trafficking of scheduled drugs and seeking criminal forfeiture of cash discovered during the search of his vehicle by Maine Drug Enforcement Agency (MDEA) agents. Defendant filed a motion to suppress the evidence gathered from the search. The suppression court denied the motion, concluding that MDEA had sufficient probable cause to search the vehicle based on the totality of the circumstances. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that because Defendant failed to show his reasonable expectation of privacy in the vehicle, his Fourth Amendment rights were not violated by the search.
