Was it legal for the police to enter my garage and take my car? 1 Answers as of February 03, 2011

Can the police enter a garage just because someone says there is a car in there with a stolen engine without contacting the legal owner? They took the car.

That would depend on a few factors. Did someone in the house give them permission to enter the garage? If so, did that person or someone else give permission for the cops to pop the hood? If there was no consent to search did the cops have a warrant?
