The chief cited instances to illustrate his talk, including the time when his own department worked on the apprehension of a hit and run driver, and the resultant road block turned up a narcotics violator. The suspect was freed, Smith said, because the court held that under existing law, the lawmen had no right to search the car.
Smith listed the things to be included as follows:
1. Type of narcotic.
2. Statement that that type of narcotic is definitely in the place to be searched, and can be proved to be there.
3. Exact address, including room or apartment number, of place to be searched, even if it's in a large hotel.
4. Names of each person who will be in the place when the search is executed.
5. Statement that the persons obtaining the warrant are bound to return any drugs found that are not specifically stated in the warrant.
