SHARNIEL BAKER v. STATE OF MARYLAND

Criminal procedure — Motion to suppress evidence — Search of person

Sharniel Baker, appellant, was arrested and charged with various drug-related offenses after the police found cocaine on his person. Prior to trial in the Circuit Court for Anne Arundel County, appellant filed a motion to suppress the cocaine. That motion was denied following a hearing. After appellant filed a motion to reconsider, which the court granted, a second suppression hearing was held. Following that hearing, the suppression court again denied appellant’s motion to suppress.
