Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If the warrant was for the residence, but the officers had the incorrect information on there, such as the name of the person on the warrant was not correct, then this can be a basis to challenge the warrant in court for them lacking proper probable cause for the warrant.
I would not make any statements and would not agree to any deals until your attorney seeks to challenge the warrant. The fact that this is the third time and the police keep coming there looking for someone else would be part of the issue the attorney would raise in trying to get the search warrant thrown out. If the warrant is thrown out, the evidence goes with it and cannot be used against you.
I would suggest that if you say he's a good lawyer and he has handled two similar warrant cases for you, that you need to let him do his job and not make any deals with anyone to become an informant as they are suggesting to you.
