WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A three-judge panel of the 10th Circuit
Court of Appeals has overturned a decision by federal judge in
Kansas to throw out evidence obtained during a search of a
suspected drug dealer's home.

In a ruling Monday, the appeals court reversed an order from
U.S. District Judge Monti Belot relating to a search warrant in the
case against Michael Biglow. Belot had ruled last year that there
was not enough probable cause for the search warrant to link
Biglow's Wichita home to criminal activity.

But the appeals panel disagreed. It said it's just commonsense
that a drug supplier would keep evidence of his crimes at his home.

Biglow is awaiting trial in a 2007 federal indictment on
drug-related charges.
