A: it depends

a lawyer would want to review the police report to see the reasonableness of their actions...........warrant? recent casino?......description? etc

the best things is to discuss this with the lawyer you retain or the lawyer the court appoints at your arraignment....that lawyer would have ALL the evidence.
