What Happens When you Don't Bring the Evidence to Court?

In Akron, Ohio the case gets dismissed.

I'm not sure how it got this far to begin with. If the pipe on the Defendant's person was obtained by an unconstitutional search why wouldn't the bag of cocaine found where the Defendant was searched be found an unconstitutional search after the officer concluded "the bag had fallen from Watts' person as I was patting him down and searching him."
