IN: SW for house includes the curtilage

A search warrant for a house gives police the ability to search the curtilage, too. Hardin v. State, 2019 Ind. App. LEXIS 234 (May 29, 2019).

Navajo Nation police officers had implied license to approach the front door of a residence and do a knock-and-talk. The occupant voluntarily consented to a search of the house. The search of his car, however, was not within the consent and there was no probable cause for it. The car search is suppressed. United States v. Trimble, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 88927 (D. Ariz. May 28, 2019).*
