“They found stuff but it was not on me”

I am Greg Spencer with Greg Spencer Law- experienced criminal defense attorney in Indianapolis IN, and I frequently get asked the same question: “How can they arrest me if nothing was found on me?”
Possession from the point of view of law is complex. You can be found in possession of something even if this item is not in your pocket or not in your hands.
If you throw an item away in front of a police officer, that item may be considered abandoned property and may be collected into evidence without consent from you.
