Agnello v. United States

In Agnello v. United States, 46 S. Ct. 4, 269 U.S. 20 (1925), the court said: "The right without a search warrant contemporaneously to search persons lawfully arrested while committing crime and to search the place where the arrest is made in order to find and seize things connected with the crime as its fruits, or as the means by which it was committed, as well as weapons and other things to effect an escape from custody, is not to be doubted."
