Arrest warrant issued for drug conspiracy. When arrest was made individual was outside, in the yard of his residence along with 2 other acquaintances. Individual dropped to his knees and hands behind his head. Never gave permission for them to enter residence. Affidavit states they were given permission by the person living there (the person they were arresting). They were never given permission. At that time, they were already in residence. Not one person outside of law enforcement was inside. The probable cause given for search warrant (issued 4 hours after they entered residence) was paraphernalia in plain sight once they illegally entered . Is it hard to prove that they were not given permission in the first place, prior to obtaining warrant? Why would someone give consent to enter, knowing there is a large quantity of drugs inside (in a locked box, not in plain sight). What is the probability of this constituting a legal search?
