U.S. Supreme Court

Kremen v. United States, 353 U.S. 346 (1957)

Kremen v. United States

No. 162

Argued March 6, 1957

Decided May 13, 1957

353 U.S. 346

Syllabus

The three petitioners were arrested by federal officers, who had an arrest warrant for only one of them. Without search warrants, the officers searched the cabin where petitioners were found, seized the entire contents of the cabin, and removed them some 200 miles away for purposes of examination. Some of the evidence so seized was introduced at the trial of petitioners in a federal court, and petitioners were convicted of certain federal offenses.

Held: objections to the search and seizure were adequately raised and preserved; the search and seizure were illegal; and admission into evidence against each of the petitioners of some of the items seized in the cabin rendered the guilty verdicts illegal. Pp. 353 U. S. 346-348.

231 F.2d 155, reversed.
