What is the name of your state? NC

Is being caught dealing marijana probable cause to search your house? And if so do you have to be found guilty in court before they can search your house?

If the police give you a knock & talk and you lie to them and they KNOW you are lying is that probable cause to search your house?

Do you have to answer knock and talks?

Yes.
No.
Yes.
No. Failure to do so if it is obvious the officer is being ignored could result in arrest upon leaving the residence though. It is called failure to comply with a police order or directive. If you really make the police mad they may just enter anyway by knocking the door down. This would require a warrant though.

-yes. being caught dealing marijuana is probable cause to get a search warrant for your residence, regardless if you've been convicted or not.

-lying to the police can get you into more trouble than its worth.

-no, you do not have to answer a knock and talk, after all its a consensual contact. and no you do not have to let them search on a knock and talk without a warrant.
