No one expects to be subject to a search. This is especially true for those in a traffic stop. Most motorists keep many items in their vehicles and, as passengers come in and out of the vehicle, it is likely that objects not belonging to the owner of the vehicle get left inside the automobile. Thus, when a search of the vehicle occurs, it is possible to have items not belonging to them located in the vehicle. When a vehicle search results in the uncovering of drugs, it is possible to use various defense options to reduce or dismiss these charges against the accused.
