I want to know if this situation is an illegal search in the state of Pennsylvania.
I have a friend who was smoking a pipe in my driveway. The neighbors called the police and the State police came out. By then, all people were inside the house. The police knocked and were allowed to enter. They stated that they smelled pot in the front room; the room they were in; and they started to search. They found 2 pipes and then stated that they were getting a search warrent to search the home. They were on the phone and said they couldn't get a warrent but they continued to search. They lifted stuff up. They found plastic baggies in one room. Two people were sited for having pipes. Is this legal?
