About this Event
510 Tiger Way, Lebanon, Indiana 46052
Police received a tip that McCoy’s residence was being robbed and that McCoy had an outstanding warrant for his arrest. Upon arriving at McCoy’s residence, the police handcuffed and detained him. Without an advisement of rights, police asked McCoy if he would walk them through the house to see if any of his property was missing, and McCoy agreed. While walking through, police smelled the odor of burnt illegal drugs; they then obtained a warrant and found drug residue and paraphernalia in the house. The Cass Superior Court denied McCoy’s motion to suppress the evidence, and a jury found McCoy guilty of possession of meth and paraphernalia. The Court of Appeals affirmed in a memorandum decision. McCoy v. State, No. 21A-CR-2000 (Ind. Ct. App. 2022), trans. pending. McCoy has petitioned the Indiana Supreme Court to accept jurisdiction over the appeal.
