Commonwealth v. W.C.

Commonwealth v. W.C.

Philadelphia police on routine patrol receive information regarding a shooting that occurred three blocks away and based on that information stop a car being driven by W.C. Claiming that W.C. exhibited “extreme nervousness” and could not adequately answer the officers’ questions, W.C. and a passenger were detained and the car was searched. During the search police recover three loaded firearms from the trunk of the car. The defense filed a motion to suppress evidence due to the fact that the police lacked reasonable suspicion to stop the car and probable cause to search it. A judge agreed and the firearms were suppressed. All charges will be withdrawn.
