There are a few items that will need clarification. However, you will need counsel to assist you in this process regardless. At your court case next week I would recommend pleading not guilty if you do not have an attorney by then. I would also start meeting with skilled lawyers who can handle this issue.

The police have a right to pat you down for weapons but not conduct a search without consent. Like Ms. McKellar says you need to lawyer up to protect your rights.
