Question by Nellie : criminal procedure question on searches for fourth amendment purposes PLEASE HELP!!? When his career in “claymation” Christmas specials dries up, Frosty the Snowman turns his attention to a different kind of “snow” – cocaine. Police suspect Frosty’s dealing drugs that he keeps in a rented storage compartment at a train station. They validly arrest him at the North Pole Diner one day. In a search incident to the arrest, the arresting officer, Sam Taklaus, finds a key.
