  37. Is information from an anonymous tipster enough for "reasonable
    • Held: The Ninth Circuit Court of
    • Appeal affirmed.  An investigatory stop and detention is lawful so long as the
    • officer acts with “a reasonable suspicion supported
    • by articulable facts that criminal activity is afoot.”  As a general
    • rule, anonymous tips, by themselves, 6 do not supply the necessary reasonable
    • suspicion.  However, when the tip is provided in a face-to-face encounter, even
    • though the informant is unidentified, there is something more than a mere
    • anonymous tip.  The in-person nature of such a tip gives it a substantial
    • indicia of reliability for two reasons:  (1)  An in-person informant risks
    • losing anonymity and being held accountable for a false tip.  (2)  An officer

    • his conclusion that the occupants of the pickup truck were involved  in criminal
    • activity.  The UPS driver’s information merely explained

    • the investigative stop of defendant’s vehicle was legally
    • justified.
