A frequent location for drug arrests is the traffic stop. Often, police officers stop a motorist on an unrelated issue, such as speeding or a non-functioning brake light. The police officer then asks to search the vehicle. They need probable cause to conduct a search of a vehicle, but, unfortunately, most drivers consent to a search without knowing they have the option to say no. If you refused to consent to the search and the police officer performed one anyway, contact us immediately. Moreover, if your passenger had drugs in the vehicle without your knowledge and you were arrested because drugs were found, Attorney John S.
