Where was the purse? was it in the area of the drivers control? Did they find controlled substances in the car before they searched your purse? Did they ask if they could search it? Two hours is disturbing if they found nothing but the c/s in your purse. You need to seek counsel and get all the facts and circumstances to them so they may give you a more precise answer.
