Erik Rangel allegedly beat and stabbed a man in a San Mateo park. The crime was believed to be gang related. Days later, a judge signed a warrant for Rangel’s arrest and a search warrant for Rangel’s home. The search warrant authorized the seizure of stabbing instruments, as well as items containing stains or traces of human blood. The search warrant further authorized the seizure of items commonly known as gang indicia.
When police served the arrest warrant and the search warrant at Rangel’s home, they seized many items, including Rangel’s cell phone, which police described as being within his reach whey they found Rangel in his bedroom. The phone was a “smart phone,” i.e. one that could store photographs and videos.
