STATE OF MARYLAND v. KASON K. LEE

Criminal procedure — Motion to suppress evidence — Traffic stop

On June 17, 2020, the Grand Jury for Cecil County returned a five-count indictment against Kason K. Lee, appellee, charging him with: (1) possession of heroin; (2) possession of fentanyl; (3) possession of fentanyl with intent to distribute; (4) possession of heroin
with intent to distribute; and (5) possession of a mixture containing heroin and fentanyl with intent to distribute. Prior to trial, appellee moved to suppress the evidence recovered after a traffic stop in Elkton, Maryland, arguing that the stop of the automobile that he was driving and the subsequent searches were unconstitutional under the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
