Most people in Missouri likely feel safe in the privacy of their own homes or other property. Because the Constitution protects people from unreasonable searches and seizures, there must be a good reason for a search of a home by law enforcement officers to occur. Despite this, it is unclear what sparked a search that ultimately resulted in felony drug charges.
The search reportedly happened on a day in early November. Both the local sheriff’s office as well as officers with the Missouri State Highway Patrol participated in the search. It is unclear what led law enforcement officials to seek a search warrant.
