Collins v. Commonwealth (U)

Police relied in good faith on a warrant authorizing a search of the defendant’s cell phone, which yielded images of a firearm matching the one used in a robbery. The affidavit supporting the warrant may not have established the requisite nexus between the phone and the shooting, but it was not so lacking in indicia of probable cause as to render official belief in its existence entirely unreasonable. The circuit court didn’t err in denying the defendant’s motion to suppress.
