    Handbook for L.E. Searches

    Posted by Hydro:

    I stumbled accross this on the web, maybe it can help everyone think of safe places for there "valuables"

    This is a handbook (allegedly) written by the U.S. federal Drug Enforcement Agency, for use in seminars teaching law enforcement how to conduct searches of suspect property.
    Whether official or not, this should help lend some insight into what law enforcement will be looking for, and where you should not be hiding evidence or illegal contraband.

    For half of those things on the list it would require demolishing someones house, or disassembling someones car. Both of which I doubt they would be able to do for steroids , since they cannot be sniffed out by a dog, they would have no reason to tear open furniture,walls,piping,etc. Or disassemble your dash components and parts of your engine. However for weed,coke,etc I think it would be feasible of the dog alerted to it and they could not find it in obvious locations.

    those are all places that drugs have been found pending a search with a dog.. on a steroid search they could never search that many areas without destroying an entire home.. I like the list though cause i am going to use a few places i read on there myself.. thanks

    they probally dont look in all those places, its probally just a list for possible suggestion for the law enforcement, im sure theyve found stuff in all those places, but that would take forever and they would literally have to rip apart a house.

    yeah i dont understand that too, cause if the search is unofficial meaning no warrant, then the entire search with whatever they find would get thrown out in court!
