Does a complaint from a neighbor allow the police to search my house? Posted on November 05, 2010

I was having a party and the police came because a neighbor complained about the noise. They asked to search my house and I said that they needed a warrant and they said they could come in because of the complaint. They found marijuana at the party and wrote me up for it even though it was not mine. However I spoke to my neighbor and she said that she did not say anything to the police about suspecting drugs she just mentioned the noise. I do not think it was legal for them to search my home and want to get rid of the charge for drug possession.
