In Win For Privacy Rights, Court Says Police Need Warrant To Search Area Around Home

By August 20, 2018 Legislation

In a win for privacy rights, the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that police may not search the area around a private home without a warrant, even when they think they have seen stolen property on the premises.

In other words, police can’t just look on property or peek in windows, see something they think is illegal and start searching without a warrant.

The case began when an orange and black motorcycle twice evaded police in Virginia. After some investigation, Albemarle County police were able to track down the driver, Ryan Collins, to his girlfriend’s house. Later, Officer David Rhodes saw a similar motorcycle under a tarp outside a private home.
