Recent Search Warrant questions

I have recently discovered that one of my roommates is

I have recently discovered that one of my roommates is selling cocaine out of his room in the aprt. There are 3 roommates total, I am the only one on lease. I started working nights about 5 months ago. Leave the aprt around 2pm and usually am home by 330am. Meaning I sleep late into a the morning and am gone all afternoon and night. Since then I've been coming home to a trashed aprt and finding used ziplock bags with a white substance in it. Recently found a plate with full boat cocaine on it in the living room confirming my suspicions. I want him gone asap. However I'm concerned that if police are called or an anon tip is placed, the aprt will most likely be searched. If illegal things are found in the common space I am worried about also being charged with involvement or that I've been aware of the situation. Is there a way to avoid this? And what should my next step be?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the boat?Customer: Maine, and full boat was an expression, the plate had full rocks of cocaine on it. His room is where most takes placeJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Nothing has been filled because I'm worried about be charged with involvementJA: Anything else you want the solicitor to know before I connect you?Customer: All set

My question is: What are police allowed to do/ touch if they

My question is: What are police allowed to do/ touch if they are granted entrance to your home? Are they allowed to kick or unravel things?My other question is: Who must allow the officer in to the premises, thereby waiving the 4th amendment right? Must it be the owner of the premises, or may it be a guest of the host? Thank you.

My roommate was arrested for putting foreign objects in edibles.While I was gone, MPD(Milwaukee Police Department) executed a search warrant. I do not have a complete list of what they may have taken but I know for sure they confiscated my high blood pressure medications(2) , an anti depressant and cholesterol lowering medication. I had all these medications recently refilled and now must pay for them out of pocket, which I am unable to afford. They also confiscated MY IPad, laptop and my computers.How/who knows where my stuff is and am I EVER going to get any of it back?

I put up a surveillance camera on my property because my

I put up a surveillance camera on my property because my neighbor has repeatedly on a daily basis spraying black flag propane insecticide fogger, which is extremly dangerous and she sprays 4-5 x a day, so we are trying to catch her doing this and we even installed a privacy fence that costed us over $12,000.00. She called the police because she said my cameras were catching her garage window on my camera, the police office made me show him what was on my motion activated game camera that was facing our side of our property at our privacy fence, when I showed him the video it clearly showed that my camera was not recording in her garage window it only caught slightly out of focus her garage window, no other house windows, he made me take down my game camera, I put an arlo on my property facing my fence which is motion activated as well, she called the cops again claiming I was her windows, her property sits about 8-10 feet higher then my property and I live below grade our property line actually extends up the hill where our privacy fence is and we have 2ft of proeprty on the other side of the fence, the office made me take him into my house to show him on my computer the video of the arlo once again, no pictures of her windows, only my fence. Was it legal for the officers to do this without a search warrant and make me take down my cameras, and what can I do regarding this neighbor, I have 4 doctors who have confirmed my lung problems are due to chemical exposure am in the process of getting more test done, I do not have asthma, as I am seeing a special asthma allergist doctor who specializes in chemical exposure, what can I do to get her to stop spraying these pesticides in my yard officers tell me I need video proof even though I have two witnesses to the smell coming severely into my yard our privacy fence is over 352 square feet long? I live in Berks County PA, Bernville, PA 19506
