  1. Chief Joseph Sinagra:

    We have to make sure that when we enter upon someone's premises, and we start doing a search, or we seize property, that we're doing that with a legal authority to do so, it's my job as the police chief to make sure that whenever we do something like this we are doing it with the color of authority to do so. In this case, we had to have a search warrant.
