Court of Appeals of Missouri, Western District, Second Division
November 25, 2014
STATE OF MISSOURI, Respondent,
DUSTIN ALLEN TIETGE, Appellant
Appeal from the Circuit Court of Pettis County. The Honorable Robert L. Koffman, Judge.
Andrew C. Hooper, Jefferson City, MO, for appellant.
Stephen M. Murrell, Glasgow, MO, for respondent.
Before: Gary D. Witt, P.J., and Lisa White Hardwick and Alok Ahuja, JJ.
Following a bench trial, Dustin Tietge was convicted in the Circuit Court of Pettis County of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, distribute, and sell, in violation of § 195.211, RSMo and of second-degree drug trafficking in violation of § 195.223, RSMo. Tietge appeals, contending that the methamphetamine discovered on his person during a traffic stop should have been suppressed as evidence, because it was discovered during an unlawful search. We affirm. Because a published opinion would have no precedential value, an unpublished memorandum setting for the reasons for this order has been provided to the parties. Rule 30.25(b).
