Alaska State Troopers
Advertisements [?]
LAst week there was an episode of this show on TV.

The trooper went to a suspected grow house/drug lab house without a warrant and knocked on the door.
The man inside the home came right outside the front door.
The trooper told the man that he didn't have a warrant and couldn't search but if there was anything the man wanted to tell him, it would be viewed positively for him cooperating.

Unless I missed it or it was edited out, he didn't say that he had any drugs inside but did not consent for the trooper to come in and search.

As he started to go back inside, the trooper said (I'm paraphrasing) "I can't let you go back in there. I suspect that you have contraband inside and while I'm waiting to get a warrant to search, you could be flushing it all down the toilet or destroying the evidence."

He didn't arrest the man but didn't let him inside either.

This sounds kind like a trap to me. What do you say?

If he never walked out the front door, then what could the cop do? Make him come out side until there was a warrant to search the house?
