My brother was arrested at someone else's house, the law inforcement had to get search warrant for that house and at same time got a search warrant for the place my brother was staying, I need to know if they were supose to give him his warrant, inform him, are leave it at the place that they searched?
None of the above was done, he received it the next morning in jail.
In the state of Miss.

I am a law school graduate. What I offer is mere information, not to be construed as forming an attorney client relationship.

If the police have a warrant to the places they searched and arrested him in, and actually told him they had a warrant, there is not much he can argue.

The only thing could be that the warrants were issued after they searched (ie. bad faith fraud on the police) or the places/addresses searched were wrong.

The smart thing to do is before any officer comes in/after they knock and announce themselves, is to ask to see a warrant and a badge number.

Hope this helps.
