does it sound to you as if I'm being investagated....it or is that something the police would do if they were investigating somebody close to me thats involved with drugs- although that 'person'doesnt involve me or my house with n e unlawful conduct....I CHATTED WITH YOU BRIEFLY APROX 2 DAYS AGO (if you recall) IN RE: QUESTIONABLE SEARCH WARRENT, CHECKIN ABOUT THE AFFADAVT

Hi

It sounds to me as if someone said you had marijuana in your home. Of course, while searching for the marijuana if they found other drugs, that is admissible as evidence against you.

It also sounds as if they are after the "bigger fish" and they are going to try to use you to help get to that person.

right I understand that but the warrent specifically stated search for methamphetamines things plfor packaginge and produce or distributed so if the warrents for marijuana why isnt that what it said? also if he isnt interested in a larger weed supplier than me, why would he have kicked in my door for much less.....
Criminal Lawyer: Samuel II, Attorney at Law replied 5 years ago
Hi

I cannot be positive, but many times doors are kicked in for effect.

Whether the warrant was for the methamphetamines or marijuana is not consequential, if you had any drugs in the home. It does not matter. They had a legal search warrant and could come in and search.

Why they have targeted you, I do not know for certain. As I stated, they may want you to help them get a bigger fish.

Hi

If he has an arrest warrant, he certainly can come and arrest you. As I tried to explain, if they found the marijuana while searching for something else, then it is a legal seizure and you can be charged.

If you do not turn yourself in, the chances are they will come and arrest you and charge you.

If you have further questions, you may post them here and I will continue to assist. Otherwise, even if you have a JA Subscription, Please ACCEPT my answer as that is the only way I get credit for my time and information. Thank you
