PAALALA SA MGA PULIS NA NAKATALAGA SA CHECKPOINT TUNGKOL SA PAGKUMPISKA NG MGA ILIGAL NA DROGA O ANUMANG BAGAY
Sa isang regular na pagsisiyasat, tulad ng routine inspection on PNP’s Anti-Criminality Program o implementation of “no plate, no travel” policy o “no helmet, no travel” policy, the rule is, the military/police personnel manning the checkpoint cannot compel the motorists to open the trunk or glove compartment of the car or any package therein. Such extensive search requires the existence of probable cause (PP vs Lacerna, Sept 5, 1997) or consent (Caballes vs CA, January 15, 2002).
