An informant told police officers that McCray (defendant) was selling drugs on a particular street corner. The informant took the officers to the corner and pointed out McCray. McCray was arrested and the officers found him in possession of heroin. McCray filed a motion to suppress the evidence and at the hearing asked the officers to provide the name and address of the informant. The prosecution’s objections to these requests were sustained. However, the officers did state that the informant had given law enforcement reliable information in about 20 prior cases. McCray’s motion to suppress the evidence was denied and he was convicted. He appealed.
