That PO was blowing smoke. He was entering private property without a warrant and he knew it.

Thanks everyone for the words of advice. Even though my wife and I are about to go full time, we are still relative newbies. Thanks again.

I agree FlyingDiver, they wouldn't come into your S&B through the screen door. The PD would have one heck of an invsion of privacy lawsuit on their hands if it were me. And I dislike lawyers more than LEOs.

Dons2346, I have been stopped and searched twice. Both times on I-10 in La. Driving my MH. Both times had open containers of wine and loaded handgun and shotgun. One was a highway patrol officer the other a federal officer with a sniffer dog. They were both looking for drugs. Federal officer sat down and Chatted with us for awhile. It does seem to help in these instances to be a very old senior citizen.

Police can not come in any door, BUT if you EVEN crack a door open they can take that as and invite in. Has happen to myself and others I know, Iowa, Tennessee , Indiana! I keep all booze outside, no worries,
