Reasonable suspicion existed to justify a Terry stop and detention

In Chase v. State, the Maryland Court of Appeals held that not only did police officers have reasonable suspicion of drug dealing sufficient to support an investigative detention but the officers' belief that the suspects may be armed and dangerous, based upon the officer's observations of the suspects furtive moments support a Terry frisk.  Even though the frisk did not reveal the presence of weapons, the officers were justified in continuing the detention and putting the suspects in handcuffs during the course of detention.   The fact that the suspects were in handcuffs during the time that the vehicle had not yet been searched did not convert the detention into an arrest.    Chase v. State - read here  -  Chase v State
