Searches & Seizures in Drug Cases
The police may legitimately search persons and property, and seize both persons and property, either with or without a warrant — IF the circumstances justify their actions. If they act without probable cause, however, or exceed constitutional limitations on their actions, both searches and seizures may be deemed invalid and any resulting evidence may be tainted and thus inadmissible.
