Can police search all rooms in the house if they belong to different people? Posted on November 01, 2010

I live in an apartment with another girl I found online and we generally lead our own separate lives. Our apartment was searched the other day because someone had reported that she sold marijuana. Although I have nothing to do with my roommate besides the fact that we both live in the same apartment, the police searched my room as well (I was not home at the time). They did not find anything in my room. Did they have probable cause to do this or can I sue for an illegal search?
