  • Police Searched Truck Looking for Drugs. They Didn’t Find Any, So They Left a Note

    -

    I've always wondered what would happen in a case like this. I often watch "Border Wars" on NatGeo and see CBP agents tear apart cars all the time. Of course, the agents are good at what they do and almost alway recover contraband from the vehicle, but if they don't recover contraband, are they liable for damages?

    And what would the standard procedure be for a case like the one mentioned in the article? Would Tampa PD be responsible for any damages?

    You are responsible for any and all damage caused to personal property.

      Methinks there may be some details missing from the story, but Rule #1 is that any search has to be reasonable. Rule #2 is usually that no matter how hard you bust your butt to observe Rule #1, it will probably still provide a fapfest for people like most of those commenting below that article. ("Police state," etc.)

        Don't read the comments!

        But yes, I got the impression the article was leaving a lot out. From the looks of it, it didn't sound like the officers trashed his vehicle, like the headline suggested. This is far from a police state.

          The media is all over it here. I think if they did this based off of a weed smell but didn't find anything, the county should pay for damages. It's no different then getting in a accident with a Leo just normally driving not on a call.

            I should know better, but sometimes ya have to read the BS to find out just what the anarchists, BHBs (Black Helicopter Believers) et al are thinking.

            This is far from a police state.
            Agreed, and I also have to remind myself now and then that there are just some people in the country who will never be convinced that it's not a "police state."
            Those same people probably don't know (or care) anything about the "fleeting targets exception" and all the other stuff that even judges sometimes have difficulty interpreting.

              I happen to know Matt personally and there's no doubt in my mind he's probably had more weed in that rig to kill Snoop Dog at some time or another


              That being said, the officers themselves (not the tax payers) should be liable for any damages that may occur during bull$h!t searches like these....
