People v. Mendoza, 2020 WL 562981 (Cal.App. 4 Dist., 2020)
Conviction for transporting cocaine reversed because of no reasonable suspicion to detain
Facts: Blanca Luna Mendoza was convicted of transporting for sale more than four kilograms of cocaine based on evidence a U.S. Customs and Border Protection agent acquired after a traffic stop on Interstate 15. Mendoza argued that the agent did not have reasonable suspicion she was engaged in criminal activity when he stopped her and the evidence should be excluded.
