The police cannot search your vehicle unless you give them your consent, which you should NOT give, or unless the police have “probable cause” to believe that criminal activity is likely taking place, that you have been involved in a crime, or that you have evidence of a crime in your car.
Probable cause is a knowledge of facts sufficient to support a reasonable belief.
Clearly state that you do NOT give your consent and make sure your statement is recorded.
If the police officer says they have probable cause for your vehicle search you should ask them what it is and make sure it is recorded.
You should not answer any questions besides your name, if it is asked. That's all.
If you have any question please call us for a free case consultation with one of our drug charge attorney. Our office is located in downtown Las Vegas.
