Would it be legal to search a car just because I am talking to someone outside the car and the officer sees money on my lap?
I was sitting in a parked car talking to a friend standing on the outside of the car. I wanted to know is it legal to search my car just because I am talking to someone outside of the car and the police claim he saw a $10 dollar bill on my lap. I was told to get out the car and search, so was the friend, but nothing was found. Now he starts to search the car. Can he do that? Is it legal?
