Ringstrom Gets Suppression in Felony Drug Case

By December 4, 2017 No Comments

A Clay County judge recently granted a motion to suppress that was made by Bruce Ringstrom Jr. The case involved a police search of a vehicle and the vehicle’s occupant in a Moorhead parking lot, and felony drug charges resulting from the search. In his motion, Ringstrom argued that the search had been illegally expanded beyond its original scope. Judge Steven Cahill agreed, writing in his order that the police officers “impermissibly and illegally seized” the defendant, and that one of the officers “embarked on a baseless fishing expedition with [his] line of questioning” at the scene.
