Q: If pulled over in a car that belongs to soemone else. Can you be charged with things found in the car?
I have a valid license from California amd the car has California plates with current registration. I have a bill of sale but no title and its still registered to the last owner. I was pulled over in Nevada. Thry claim they found a small amount of drugs. The tow yard won't let me get any of my things out of the car since its not in my name. So how can i be charged with drugs they claim to have found? The deputy made that dog bark. The dog didnt hit anyway.
