Eighth Circuit -- United States v. John Farnell

Physical appearance of deft, appearance of vehicle, and proximity to crime scene justified stop, given issuance of bulletin.

By spoken consent and opening the door to the van, deft consented to the search.

Given probable cause for the search of the automobile, police did not need to get second consent to search after obtaining consent to initial search.
