Gray, 33 FLW 1261, 4th DCA, error to deny motion to suppress physical evidence and statements made by the def after officer responding to BOLO immediately arrested him, handcuffed him and administered Miranda warnings where ofc lacked pc to make warrantless arrest-earlier consensual encounter in which a fellow officer, who later issued BOLO, observed def side-stepping diagnoally up driveway between two cars and asked def to come over and talk to him, def approached gave ofc his name and consented to a frisk by a second officer, and ofc allowed the def to continue on his way did not give the ofc reasonable belief that the def had committed or was committing the crime-facts and circumstances within the ofc's knowledge was insufficient to warrant reasonable belief that def was committing or about to commit a trespass-Fact that ofc who issued th eBOLO found black powder on the grass did not raise reasonable suspicion that def had been carrying the pistol on or about his person or had discarded it
