Most residents of eastern Washington and Idaho probably couldn't name all of the items in their house. If police were to suddenly enter the home of a local living in Spokane, for instance, there's no telling what might be found that could inadvertently implicate someone in some sort of offense. Possession of a weapon, for instance, when one has previously been convicted of a felony crime can mean serious trouble for the person who owns the gun.
Still, when police search a person's home, there are many different procedures, rules and laws that must be followed in order for their investigation to prove sound in a court of law. If authorities do not follow every step according to proper procedure the prosecution's case can become very shaky. Still, certain crimes, such as drug selling or possession of a weapon during the commission of a felony, are not taken lightly by local officials and they will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
