District court's denial of defendant's motion to suppress evidence found in his apartment is affirmed where: 1) defendant was not deprived of a fair Franks hearing as the district court's evidentiary rulings on defendant's questions regarding a confidential informant and a tipster were either within the court's discretion or did not have a material effect on the outcome of the proceeding; and 2) the district court was correct in finding that adequate probable cause supported the warrant.
