Collins v. Virginia Oral Argument The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Collins v. Virginia, Docket number 16-1027, which addresses warrantless searches and how far the Fourth Amendment’s automobile exception extends in order for such a search to occur. Police are permitted to search a vehicle without a warrant if they have probable cause to believe it had been involved in illegal activities. Ryan Collins was the petitioner in this case. In 2013, police investigated an unidentified motorcyclist who’d been evading them in high speed chases. Law enforcement officials believed Mr. Collins was involved. During their investigation, they were led to Mr. Collins’s girlfriend’s house where a motorcycle covered by a tarp was parked in the driveway. An officer lifted the tarp and ran the number on the motorcycle, it showed up as stolen, and Mr. Collins was arrested and charged. His legal team argues the officer was in the wrong, trespassed onto private property, and went beyond the limits automobile exception. close
