My neighbors home was burglarized cops came knocking on my door my son also came to the.door when i answered it took a look at his shoes and determined he did it. When it turns out the.shoe print they found was from Vans and my son was wearing Adios. They held him i told them i would not consent to search they came in my house and said they were freezing my propery until they could get a warrant. This started at 11pm amd they held myself my daughter my boyfriend 2 friends amd her daughter and said we were not free to go. We waited umtil 8:30 am at wich point I was told they had a warrant signed and they said they were.going to toss my whole hous and i finally consented because we get to wprk school ect and had been held for over 9 hours and I asked them how long they could hold us why we were being held are we free to.leave and was told if we.leave we.will be arrested so I basically had no rights. How legal was this?
