My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
A police officer is allowed to stop someone if he has probable cause to believe the person committed a crime. It is possible that he'd have probable cause to believe that a crime occurred if a person was visiting a known drug house, especially if he were in and out in just a couple of minutes, or left carrying a package.
Police may always run license plates of vehicles seen in traffic, because there is no right of privacy in things the public at large can see. Anyone can view a license plate - they're not private.
If the known owner of a given vehicle has a warrant for his arrest, then they could stop the car for that reason - otherwise, there would have to be some other reason.
