Conviction for drug crimes and firearms possession is affirmed where the trial court did not err in denying defendant's motion to suppress as: 1) the initial detention of defendant was reasonable; 2) a patsearch of defendant was supported by a reasonable suspicion that he was armed and dangerous; 3) handcuffing defendant did not constitute a de facto arrest; and 4) the search of the passenger compartment of defendant's car was reasonable under the Fourth Amendment.
