Inventory Search of your vehicle

An inventory search of your vehicle by a law enforcement officer must be done "in accordance with reasonable standardized procedure(s) or established routine." While the procedures do not need to be in writing, the prosecutor must show that the police department has a standardized, routine police and the police officer's conduct conformed to that policy. The purpose of an inventory search is to identify and preserve your property and to protect your rights and interests. A proper inventory search may uncover incriminating evidence against you but the search cannot be done as a fishing expedition with the sole purpose of trying to uncover drugs or evidence of some other crime.

If you have been charged with drug possession, drug trafficking or some other crime because of something found in your vehicle during a traffic stop, contact the Mason and Warren County Criminal Defense Attorneys at Haughey, Deters & Niehaus.
