MA Probable Cause to Arrest

MA Police Probable Cause to Arrest

Police can arrest you if they have probable cause to believe you committed a crime. Many times when the police find drugs that can lead to your arrest.  Police don’t need to actually see you doing anything illegal or find any drugs on your person.  In a motion hearing, the prosecutor needs to prove that the police had probable cause to arrest.  If these factors are present, the court is more likely to rule that the police had probable cause.

  1. Drugs in possession
  2. Throwing drugs on ground
  3. Gun in possession
  4. Your admission to the drugs
  5. Finding packaging materials, scrib notes, and drug paraphernalia
  6. Drugs found in car
  7. Your flight from area
  8. Your ownership of car with drugs in it
