You may be under the impression that a police officer may search you because he or she believes you've done something wrong, but the reality is that the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects you against illegal searches and seizures. To get a warrant that gives the officer a right to search you, your vehicle or your property, there must be probable cause.
It's one thing to get arrested, but it's another to get arrested multiple times in a few days. Getting arrested multiple times makes you look very bad in the eyes of the law, even if they're all coincidental or as a result of being set up by the same officer multiple times.
You've always enjoyed making prank calls. When you were a child, you thought nothing of it. Now that you're an adult, though, you're starting to wonder about the ramifications. Do they go beyond simply annoying the person you're calling? Could you be arrested?

A 37-year-old woman from North Carolina was working as a pharmacy manager, and she's been accused of using that position to commit fraud. To cover up the income she was earning through that fraud, she has also been accused of money laundering.
Police can't make an arrest without probable cause. They cannot simply arrest a private citizen for no reason and then begin digging into his or her background, looking for a crime that justifies it.
Cocaine charges are very serious, no matter the situation. While some drug crimes can net you relatively minor misdemeanor charges, cocaine always brings about felony charges. That's true if you sell it, move it over state lines or just possess it for personal use.
