DENNIS J. CROSS v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal procedure — Motion to suppress evidence — Cellphone

In 2016, Dennis J. Cross was charged with a variety of crimes arising out of a burglary and the theft of personal property, primarily firearms and ammunition. He filed a pre-trial motion to suppress evidence that the police obtained from his cellphone. The Circuit Court for Worcester County denied the motion. Cross then pled not guilty upon an agreed statement of facts with respect to one count of second-degree burglary, three counts of theft of property valued less than $1,000, and three counts of possessing a shotgun by a
prohibited person. The court convicted Cross on all charges and sentenced him to prison.
