If the police have a warrant to search my house, can they look anywhere?

Return to FAQ Videos


The police can’t search anywhere if they have a warrant to search your house. It has to be specified in the warrant exactly what they’re searching for. So if they were searching for a person in your house, then they can’t look in drawers, they can’t look in small places that obviously a person cannot fit. However, if they’re searching for drugs, then that gives the police more leeway to search in drawers, search in small places in order to find what they’re looking for. So it’s all going to depend on what the warrant states that they can look for as to exactly what places they’re allowed to search.
