    Pulled over tonight.

    So first want to say the police that pulled me over where nice and seemed to be doing a appropriate job. As for the pull over.

    There was a suspected shooting right at the time and place I was driving by with sorta similar vehicle and I was going pretty fast away from the area so makes sense to pull me over. They took me out of the car and disarmed me which I assume is normal givin the situation. The two things I’m wondering about are that they searched my car without my permission and I assume no warrant. But they where under the assumption that I had just shot at somebody. So is that legal? And the second is that they took pictures of my guns. Is that legal? Just want clarification on the legality’s. I feel the cops treated me fairly and feel like these are logical things to do just wondering what the law says
    I hope they catch the idiot that did the shooting.

    Given the reason for the stop, I'm ok with everything right up until the search of the car.

    Just curious, if the OP had something illegal in his car, would it be admissible in court?

    If it was found during the search he described, I'm gonna go with no.

    The search? Not so OK to me. But if you found it OK, then thats the end of it.
    I drive a marked Security Jeep, my Sons company. Last time I got pulled over, it was two Motor Bike Cops. Said they were going to tell my son I was going 5 above the linit!
    We are not oligated to say we are armed, in a stop. So I dont, but twice in 15 years is not so bad?

    I am with VUPD on the search angle. What did they hope to find.. If you were cleared of being a suspect then just stop. This fishing **** we see all the time gets to be a bit of a push.

    But if you are OK with it then so be it.

    Not a good search but, at least no curb stomping.

    This is legal advice: you should call a lawyer.

    This is not legal advice to you or anyone else: generally, a limited search of the areas of the car that the person matching the description had access to is allowed because of a few factors: they were investigating a shooting, so they need to know if the person they stopped stashed a gun basically within arm's reach, and they had already figured out that the person was armed. Generally, taking pictures of the guns would allow them to confirm that the guns they took from the person that matched the description weren't the same ones used. Technically, they may have actually been able to keep the guns to do some forensic stuff (get the lands/grooves pattern and such) in case they found forensic stuff from the actual shooting.

    In Indiana, the officers' conduct will be measured against what is "reasonable." That is not a bright line, but a balancing of the entire situation. It sounds like what you describe fits within reasonable, so the officers are probably good. And well-trained.

    If it was a full blown search of the car, like the trunk and everything, in the absence of a warrant, that's risky. If they had found the proverbial dead body, they may've screwed the entire case.
