Did the police have probable cause to search their apartment? Posted on January 16, 2011

My boyfriend called the ambulance to go to the ER. When the paramedics arrived he was sitting in the kitchen right by the door. One of the paramedics went around him and into the living room and saw his paraphernalia. My boyfriend was transported to the ER but the cops were called. The house was searched while he was gone and they found 6 marijuana plants in his roommates room. I was just wondering if the cops can really search an apartment. based on the word of someone else and whether they had the right to search the roommates closet when the EMT would have only known about the paraphernalia on the living room table?
