The Supreme Court first hinted at the fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine in Silverthorne Lumber Co. The heroin in Yee's possession was admissible at trial, as was Sun's own statement.

Although the agents had been watching Way for six weeks, they did not have a warrant for his arrest. With only four items in evidence, Sun and Toy were convicted by the court in a bench trial. Furthermore, Toy's flight did not give Fruit of the Poison Tree officers probable cause to arrest Toy: Agent Alton Wong had first posed as a customer, and this made Toy's flight ambiguous and not necessarily the product of a guilty mind.

The government appealed to the U. In Wong Sun, a number of federal narcotics agents had arrested Hom Way in San Francisco at 2:00 A. While in custody there, Yee stated that he had gotten the heroin about four days earlier from Toy and another person he knew as "Sea Dog. Again without a warrant, Wong and the other agents broke open the door, followed Toy, and arrested him.
