Commonwealth v. Arrington

Pennsylvania Superior Court

June 9, 2020

The defendant appealed from the judgment of sentence entered following his convictions of one count each of firearms not to be carried without a license, disregard traffic lane, failure to keep right, and possession of drug paraphernalia, and two counts each of possession of a controlled substance and possession with intent to deliver.  The Superior Court affirmed in part, reversed in part, and remanded.


The Court determined that the police officers did not have reasonable suspicion to search the defendant’s vehicle. Although the stop occurred late at night in a high crime area, the officers did not observe weapons or contraband in plain view; the defendant did not display extreme nervousness; and the defendant did not make furtive movements.
