27692 - State v. Bash

Walter Bash was indicted for trafficking in cocaine and cocaine base. The circuit court found officers conducted an illegal search, and suppressed the drugs. The State appealed. The court of appeals reversed the circuit court's suppression order and remanded for trial. We issued a writ of certiorari to review the court of appeals' decision. We now reverse the court of appeals and reinstate the circuit court's order suppressing the evidence.
