Motion to suppress granted where probable cause founded on illegal hotel room search

In U.S. v. Pope, Judge Jones of the W.D. Va. granted the defendant's motion to suppress evidence from the search of his vehicle by police, who were acting on knowledge they obtained from a search of the defendant's hotel room for which they had no consent and no warrant. The defendant was represented by David Scyphers of Abingdon.
