Can police find evidence on a warrant and not charge you or arrest you on the scene? 1 Answers as of June 10, 2017

My house was searched and evidence was found that should have led to an arrest. However, no arrests were made or charges filed. Can they sit on this evidence and use it to arrest them at a later date? Is there a time limit to how long they can sit on it before using it to make an arrest?

They are discussing the matter internally and with prosecutor on whether to proceed with charges. You actually could get a letter to appear at your arrangement, rather than being arrested.
