IN: SW for house and garage permits search of car found in garage

Officers had a search warrant for a house and garage. A car found in the garage could be searched under the warrant. State v. Lucas, 2018 Ind. App. LEXIS 347 (Oct. 1, 2018).

The search warrant didn’t describe firearms and ammunition. The state relied on third party consent, which was not voluntary. Considering all the proof, however, it was harmless beyond a reasonable doubt considering all the proof connecting defendant to the murder. He admitted having the gun before it was found. State v. Smoot, 2018 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 739 (Oct. 1, 2018).*
