Reasonable Suspicion – Stop – Basis – Citizen Informant, Generally

State v. Jeffrey P. Powers, 2004 WI App 143
For Powers: Walter Arthur Piel, Jr.

Issue/Holding:

¶9. Powers attacks the tip provided by the clerk at Osco; he contends that Bethia could not give it any credence. We begin by restating the obvious: when a caller provides his or her name, the tip is not anonymous; it is a tip from a citizen informant. See Sisk, 247 Wis. 2d 443, ¶8. … The inherent reliability of a citizen informant trumps Powers’ argument that the clerk did not have a history of providing reliable information to law enforcement.
