My question involves search and seizure law in the State of: Pennsylvania
My nephew was stopped by the police in my car registered to me only. The reason they initially stopped him is still very unclear even to us. when he was stopped he had a warrant for a parole violation outstanding and they say he smelled of alcohol. To try and make this short, he was charged with a dui along with a slew of traffic charges. A half hour after he was at the police station they recieved a call about a burglary of a store that was near where they stopped him. Of course they are trying to pin the burglary on him. It's been almost three moths now and he still has not been charged with anything but the above traffic offenses. I have spoken with the detective who is working the burglary case several times because he is "holding my car until his investigation is complete". Is this legal? If not then who should I contact? I've spoken to his chief but I believe they are stonewalling me.
