It has appeared as a pattern to me that C-store robbers, drug dealers, and the like are often caught after a short time because of routine traffic stops due to vehicle or driving problems, unrelated to the major crime.

I did misdemeanor "court-appointed" defense for awhile years ago- Most misdemeanors are more "stupid" than "criminal".

My favorite was guys without licenses being pulled over for speeding, broken taillight, etc., then getting popped for driving while suspended. Used to tell them, do a walk-around on your car to make sure everything is up to snuff, then obey the traffic laws, and you can drive virtually forever without a license, in most cases, because there has to be "probable cause" to pull you over. Knew of some who beat the system for many years, but few and far between.

Yep, there ya go.

Usually, cop can't stop someone on basis of a tip alone- but can follow the guy until he screws up, then stop him. Then do a search (can search for several reasons, legally- search incident to arrest, or for dangerous weapons to insure officer's safety, or to inventory for impound).

We see that all the time here in Nebraska.

I-80 goes through my county, and is the main route for drugs from the west coast to the east coast, and drug money from the east coast back to the west coast. I boggles the mind how stupid some of these "mules" are.

One bonehead from California recently got busted with a million in meth in his van 'cause he stopped and took a leak in broad daylight on the shoulder of I-80.

It's almost like they WANT to get busted. And it's possible they do. About 20 years ago, a local guy was growing marijuana and had a brother selling it on the west coast. When they got busted, the judge was going to let the guy out on bail. The guy pleaded with the judge not to. He figured he was safer in jail than on the street at that point.
