Police found drugs in wrong apartment

police search drugs

In 1986, Baltimore, the police got a warrant to search the “3rd floor apartment”, they found the drugs and cashes, then realized they entered a wrong apartment – there were two separated apartments at the 3rd floor but the police thought there was only one.

The drug dealer’s lawyer wanted to suppress the evidence by invoking the 4th Amendment, but the United States Supreme Court refused.
