Does a passenger of a vehicle having contraband give them probable cause to search entire vehicle including the locked trunk? Is probable cause enough to search locked compartments?
Michael, sorry for the delay in responding to your question. All of your individual questions are directly addressed in Chapter 4 of my book “Minnesota Handbook on Warrantless Motor Vehicle Searches”. A digital copy of the book Can be found on my blog web page under “Featured Book”. Make sure you look at the vignette examples in that chapter. Chapter 4 was designed to answer those exact type of questions. Please let me know if that helps. Good luck.
