Colorado Supreme Court: Suppression Not Warranted where Defendant Dropped Drugs Prior to Seizure

The Colorado Supreme Court issued its opinion in People v. Taylor on Monday, April 30, 2018.

Arrest—Seizure—Suppression.

Pursuant to C.A.R. 4.1, the People challenged an order of the district court granting Taylor’s motion to suppress drug evidence. The supreme court held that the district court erred in granting Taylor’s motion to suppress because no seizure had yet taken place when Taylor dropped the drugs.

The court reversed the district court’s suppression order and remanded the case for further proceedings.
