Denial of motion to suppress in conviction of defendant for drug possession affirmed

US v. Williams, 10-1608, concerned a challenge to the district court's denial of a defendant's motion to suppress, in a prosecution of the defendant for possession with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of a substance containing cocaine and sentenced to 60 months' imprisonment.  In affirming, the court held that the DEA task force had enough information to support a finding of probable cause to search the vehicle and that information can be imputed to the officers who conducted the stop and search under the collective knowledge doctrine.
