Weekly D347 (Fla. 4th DCA, Feb 16, 2011): Appeal of denial for motion to suppress stop, reversed – A person approaches law enforcement at unrelated stop and makes claim that someone may be involved in illegal drug activity.  Person describes car in detail and specifically describes male driver.  Police later see car and male (with a female) and stop car.  Court finds this to be an anonymous tip and requires further corroboration before reasonable suspicious can form.
