Hey guys and gals, im i will be graduating the academy this week, im 27. Saw something today on campus PD when i was fliiping thru the channels. The arkansas cop stopped the guy who was driving with his GF, after the owner/operator agreed to a search of his wingspan area on the car, the officer said he smlled "pot odor on the seats" but recovered no weed or paraphanalia. He said that gave him enuff PC for a complete vehicle search and including the purse and any bags in the car. Now my question is, does that include the rear seats even though no one sat back there? and how does it include that GF"s purse?.....long story short, they did find drugs in her purse, and she took a ride for it in the end, but would our 4th ammendment rights protect her from that search, or does that PC to search the car over rule people's personal effects(i.e. a purse)....even in the academy this was a hairy issue to me, i always figured departmental policy would depict what can and cant be done for the most part? including searches.
No announcement yet.
Search question for vehicles.
