U.S. Supreme Court

Texas v. White, 423 U.S. 67 (1975)

Texas v. White

No. 75-124

Decided December 1, 1975

423 U.S. 67


Where police officers had probable cause to search respondent's automobile at the scene immediately after arresting him for attempting to pass fraudulent checks at a bank drive-in window, such probable cause still obtained shortly thereafter at the station house to which the automobile had been taken so that the officers could constitutionally search the automobile there without a warrant, Chambers v. Maroney, 399 U. S. 42; hence, incriminating checks seized during the search were admissible in evidence at respondent's trial.

Certiorari granted; 521 S.W.2d 255, reversed and remanded.
