U.S. Supreme Court

Preston v. United States, 376 U.S. 364 (1964)

Preston v. United States

No. 163

Argued February 25, 1964

Decided March 23, 1964

376 U.S. 364


Petitioner and two companions, who had been seated for several hours in a parked car, were arrested by the police for vagrancy, searched for weapons, and taken to the police station. The officers had the car towed to a garage, and soon thereafter they went themselves to the garage and, for the first time, searched the car. Various articles found in the car were later turned over to federal authorities and used as evidence in a trial in federal court resulting in petitioner's conviction of conspiracy to rob a federally insured bank.

Held: the evidence obtained in the search of the car without a warrant was inadmissible because, being too remote in time or place to be treated as incidental to the arrest, it failed to meet the test of reasonableness under the Fourth Amendment. Pp. 376 U. S. 364-368.

305 F.2d 172 reversed and remanded.
