Police Obtain Warrant to Search Cell Phone

Previously, I had posted about the police searching the contents of cell phones incident to an arrest.

One of the arguments has been that there is not enough time to obtain a warrant because the data on cell phones is limited and may be lost over time (especially call records).

However, in a recent case the police arrested a suspect on the charge of illegally possessing a gun. The police then OBTAINED A WARRANT FOR THE CONTENTS OF HIS CELL PHONE. The cell phone contained pictures of the defendant appearing to hold the gun.
