If a police search of your vehicle has resulted in your arrest, then you may be wondering what your options are in your case. That greatly depends on whether the search of your car was lawful in the first place. If it wasn't, then any of the potentially incriminating evidence that law enforcement seized may be able to be suppressed. That's why it's important that you know when police can lawfully search your car.
