State v. Hinson, 203 N.C. App. 172 (Apr. 6, 2010)

rev’d on other grounds, 364 N.C. 414 (Oct. 8, 2010)

Rejecting the defendant’s argument that information relied upon by officers to establish probable cause was stale. Although certain information provided by an informant was three weeks old, other information pertained to the informant’s observations made only one day before the application for the warrant was submitted. Also an officer opined, based on his experience, that an ongoing drug production operation was present at the location.
