Cromwell, CT asked in Criminal Law for Massachusetts

Q: A drug Warent was issued for 64

A drug Warent was issued for 64

Now I turned 64 a and 64 b into one apartment. (They didn't know that)

But legally at city hall it's still listed as 64 a and 64 b ( two apartments)

do the police have a right to raid 64b and 64a???

Ir does the warrant have to be specific

It only said 64 soI'm thinking they couldn't even raid my apartment.

Is this a weak case of a strong one

Also they didn't have a warrant for my safe asked for the key and they opened it

And they never gave me a copy of the warrant they flashed it to me real quick

A: Your attorney should look at the warrant. If it's defective because of the address issue then there might be a motion to dismiss or suppress.

A: The warrant should be specific as to the residence. Why was your unit searched? Are the units' letters recorded with the city records?
