¶1 The Defendant, Reginald Beijer, was stopped on an interstate highway for a traffic infraction, and a consensual search of his car revealed drugs in a hidden compartment in the trunk. During his trial for transportation of narcotic drugs for sale, evidence was admitted that the Defendant's conduct fit the pattern of a drug courier. The trial court granted the Defendant's request for a mistrial because the admission of such evidence is improper under State v. Lee, 191 Ariz. 542, 959 P.2d 799 (1998). After the mistrial was granted, the Defendant moved to bar retrial on the grounds that the State, by presenting drug courier profile evidence, had engaged in intentional misconduct. The trial court denied that motion, and the Defendant brought this special action to reverse that order. Following oral argument, we accepted jurisdiction and denied relief, stating that this opinion would follow.
