CASE ENTRY

United States v. Perkins

DEA agents obtain “anticipatory warrant” to search Belvidere, Tenn. home once undercover agent hand delivers package containing meth “to Perkins.” Yikes! The agent hands the package to Perkins’ fiancée. Sixth Circuit: Suppress the evidence. The “replace-some-words canon of construction has never caught on in the courts.”
