Is this an illegal search and seizure?

My boyfriend's car broke down and he left it there, the police ran a search on his plates and found that he had 3 FTA's and came to out house and arrested him. They knocked on the door and entered, they arrested him right a way and asked him if there were any drugs in the house. He said no, but then they found the weed on the floor and looked around our house, in the kitchen, closets, bedrooms on shelves. We asked him if it was illegal for him to search the house, without a warrent, and he said it was probable cause. And took all of our paraphenelia and weed and him. They told us they could smell the pot when they walked into our house. They charged him with possession and intent to sell, it was 3.5 pounds, they also charged him with the paraphenilia charge, after I had told them it was my bong and my papers and my pipes, etc... Also, the same arresting officer had come to the house before, without my boyfriends permission (while nobody was home, the landlord let him in) and smashed another bong he had and gave him a ticket for driving without a license. Is there anything illegal about this?
