In Cadle, 136 Ga. App., supra at 233, we held that "the trial court erred in refusing to allow appellant to amend his motion to suppress and thereafter consider the motion on its substantive merits."Summary of this case from Boatright v. State
ARGUED FEBRUARY 4, 1974.
DECIDED MARCH 6, 1974.
Motion to suppress. Clayton Superior Court. Before Judge Banke.
Al Horn, for appellant.
William H. Ison, District Attorney, Robert E. Keller, for appellee.
A motion to suppress "shall be in writing and state facts showing wherein the search and seizure were unlawful." Code Ann. § 27-313 (b); Brannen v. State, 117 Ga. App. 69 ( 159 S.E.2d 476). The motion here alleged as grounds that "The affidavit was illegally executed in that it contains materially false allegations or information; that the place to be searched is vaguely and inaccurately described; the procedures for effectuating and reporting searches were not duly followed; and that the search was without probable cause and not supported by the warrant. The affidavit is facially insufficient." Not one fact was alleged which would show that the search and seizure were unlawful. The motion to suppress was procedurally defective and the trial judge correctly dismissed the motion without hearing any evidence.
Judgment affirmed. Quillian and Clark, JJ., concur.
