Agnello v. United States 269 U.S. 20 (1925)
AGNELLO v. UNITED STATES 269 U.S. 20 (1925)
In Agnello the Supreme Court extended the scope of search incident to arrest from the person of the arrestee, previously authorized in weeks v. united states (1914), to the premises on which the arrest was made. The precise extent of the allowable search was, however, not delineated; it became a matter of great judicial contention in later cases.
