New Mexico Supreme Court: Search Justified Because Passenger Dressed Like Prostitute (TheNewspaper)
Monday October 15th, 2012
Police were right to search a vehicle carrying a passenger dressed like a prostitute, New Mexico's highest court declared in an August 30 ruling. The state Supreme Court did so to reinstate the conviction of Gunnar Olson, who was arrested December 1, 2007 after being searched by Albuquerque Police Officer Trey Economidy. At around 12:30am, Economidy spotted Olson driving behind a 7-11 convenience store at the intersection of University Boulevard and Central Avenue. He found Olson's behavior suspicious.
