    They can always try to charge you. That said, I suspect they were just giving you a case of nerves - that pot has been smoked by now. I can't imagine any PD with nothing better to do than chase circumstantial minor possession charges.

    Kinda what im hoping for. But if not, does anybody know what area of the statutes i would look. You would think this kinda stuff would be easier to find cause i know im not the only one who's had this happen.

    Anything can happen, but I'd love to see the prosecutor try that case. Your honor, the evidence in question was handed to us by the tow company employee. He double pinky swears it was in the defendant's car.

    If the impound lot notified the police when they found contraband, and the police came out and took it into evidence, I don't think that it would be particularly difficult for the prosecutor to argue that the contraband belonged to the defendant. If the impound lot removed the contraband, more so if a significant amount of time passed before they contacted the police, it would become a more difficult case. DNA testing remains possible, but a prosecutor would likely not be inspired to put that level of resources into a minor case.
