RULING ON MOTION TO SUPPRESS
BRENT W. PEYTON,
Defendant.
On December 3, 2014, a hearing was held on Defendants Motion to Suppress.
Defendant personally appeared along with his attorney, James Schall. The State was
represented by County Attorney Ben Smith. The hearing was reported. The Court heard the
testimony of the witnesses and took the matter under advisement so that it could review the
Defendants Brief and to consider the legal and factual issues raised. Having now considered
the evidence and arguments submitted in this matter, the Court now issues this Ruling.
Summary of Factual Background & Factual Findings

Based on the evidence submitted to the Court, the Court makes the following factual
findings: Deputy Cudabeck and Deputy Biede were enroute to serve an arrest warrant. As
Deputy Cudabeck approached the house on foot, he observed a vehicle legally parked on the
street. The vehicle caught the attention of the officer because the occupants of the vehicle
were only partially visible. The male driver of the vehicle was crouched down and peeked
his head up and the female passenger was reclined in the backseat. Deputy Cudabeck
approached the vehicle and confirmed there was a male in the driver seat and a female in the
back passenger seat.
Deputy Cudabeck began speaking with the driver who was identified as Brent Peyton
(Peyton), who advised that he and his passenger had stopped because the female was not
feeling well. The passenger, later identified as Amie Lively (Lively), confirmed that she
was not feeling well. As he spoke with the couple, Deputy Cudabeck smelled the odor of
marijuana coming from the vehicle. Deputy Cudabeck directed Peyton to exit the vehicle

E-FILED 2014 DEC 10 1:03 PM SAC - CLERK OF DISTRICT COURT

and detained him so he could speak with the passenger. Deputy Biede assisted by detaining
Peyton. Deputy Cudabeck asked Lively if there were narcotics in the vehicle. Lively
indicated there could be and handed Deputy Cudabeck a bag containing marijuana. The
deputies then searched the vehicle and located additional controlled substances.

Issues Presented
Defendant asserts that the search of his car was conducted without probable cause and
without a warrant or an exception to the warrant requirement.

Legal Analysis and Conclusions: Search of Vehicle


Defendant contends that law enforcement did not have probable cause or an
exception to the warrant requirement that permitted the search of his vehicle. The Court
disagrees. It is true that this was a warrantless search. A warrantless search violates the
Fourth Amendment unless it falls within a recognized exception. State v. Showalter, 427
N.W.2d 166 (Iowa 1998). Exceptions include: (1) consent to search; (2) the presence of
probable cause and exigent circumstances; (3) objects in plain view; and (4) search
conducted incident to a lawful arrest.
Here, there was probable cause to believe there was contraband in the car. Probable
cause exists if, given the totality of the circumstances, a reasonable person would believe
evidence of a crime will be located. State v. Simmons, 714 N.W.2d 264 (Iowa 2006). The
exigency requirement is satisfied by a vehicles inherent mobility. State v. Hoskins, 711
N.W.2d 720 (Iowa 2006).
In this case, in terms of probable cause to search the vehicle, Deputy Cudabeck
smelled the odor of marijuana and Lively admitted there could be marijuana in the vehicle,
and then produced a bag of marijuana. The smell of contraband coupled with the suspicious
behavior of the occupants of the vehicle and Livelys statements and actions gave Deputy
Cudabeck probable cause to believe there was contraband in the vehicle. In addition, the car
was readily mobile, as it had recently been driven to the location. If a car is readily mobile
and probable cause exists to believe it contains contraband, the Fourth Amendment permits

E-FILED 2014 DEC 10 1:03 PM SAC - CLERK OF DISTRICT COURT

police to search the vehicle without more. Chambers v. Maroney, 399 U.S. 42, 90 S.Ct.
1975, 26 L.Ed.2d 419 (1970). In other words, since Deputy Cudabeck had probable cause to
believe there was contraband in the car, the Deputies were permitted to search the car.
Defendants objection to the legality of the search of the vehicle is, therefore, overruled. The
search of the vehicle was legal.
Summary and Conclusion
The search of Defendants vehicle was done in such a manner that a warrant was not
required, and, as such, did not violate Defendants rights to be free from unreasonable
searches and seizures.

IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED as follows:


Defendants Motion to Suppress is denied. The trial previously set in this matter shall
take place as scheduled.

MOTION TO DISMISS PURSUANT TO


IOWA R. CRIM. P. 2.33

BRENT W. PEYTON,
Defendant.

COMES NOW the State of Iowa, through Sac County Attorney Ben Smith,
and states the following in support of its Motion to Dismiss:
1.

When law enforcement approached defendants vehicle in this

case, defendant was in the front seat, and defendants passenger, Amie Lively,
was in the backseat.
2.

The controlled substances (methamphetamine and marijuana) and

paraphernalia (collectively, items) at issue were seized from the backseat of


defendants vehicle.
3.

Amie Lively subsequently pleaded guilty to possessing the

methamphetamine

(Sac County Case No. SCR012546) and admitted to

possessing the marijuana.


4.

The undersigned has been informed by defendants counsel that

Ms. Lively plans to testify that the items belonged solely to her and defendant
was unaware that the items were in defendants car.
5.

The defendant denied possessing the items and has maintained

that at no time did he have any knowledge that the items were in the vehicle.
WHEREFORE, based on the foregoing, the State respectfully requests
that the Court dismiss this case without prejudice, with costs to the defendant,
and order such other reliefs the Court deems just and equitable in the premises.
