Hello again Joseph -
The police do not have the right to tell her to leave town with her son or they will take her son away from her. The only thing they have the right to do is contact the Dept of CHildren's Services who will start an investigation to determine whether or not the child is in danger and must be removed from the house. Finally, depending upon where the backpack was in the house, your girlfriend could end up facing criminal charges for having drugs in her home -- it doesn't matter that she is telling the police that the backpack belongs to her brother because as far as the police are concerned, the backpack could belong to anyone. If her brother has a separate bedroom in her house identified as just his "space" and the backpack was found there, then she is in good shape as far as criminal charges go. However, if the backpack was found in any common areas or even a guest bedroom, she may have some difficulties with the police and/or the Dept of Children's Services. My suggestion to you in this matter is to find an attorney for her tomorrow so in the event that the police try to charge her or take her son away from her then you will have an attorney all ready to talk with them about all of these matters to get your girlfriend out of the trouble that her brother has created. To find a local criminal law attorney your best bet is to contact your local county bar association and ask them for a referral to a criminal law attorney in your area and they will give you several names. Call a few tomorrow to see who can handle a case quickly and then speak with the lawyer to get the lawyer ready to speak to the police in case it becomes necessary to do so.
As I said, the police cannot order her to "leave town" -- but they can get children's services involved and children's services can remove her child on an emergency basis if they feel the place is unsafe or the child is in danger. If you have a lawyer ready to take all of this on, my bet is that the police will not make any moves against your girlfriend or her son.
