My name is***** and I'm happy to help with your question today. I need to ask you some preliminary questions to be able to help you.
Have you or anyone in your household been in any trouble with the police in the past?
yes I was a few years back?
but it was nothing to do with drugs
Anything for drugs? I mean is there any reason the police may think you're involved in dugs?
Drugs I meant.
no nothing at all, and when the police gave me my new set of keys they said it was because of a tip off
The police can only enter and search your home if they have a warrant issued by the Magistrates Court. The Magistrates decide whether the information (the "tip off") is sufficient to justify granting a warrant. Where a warrant is granted it is very difficult to stop the police conducting a search. However, if you have suffered any damage or loss you can mske a complaint against thr police and claim damages.
