If they don’t have enough but they still kind of force themselves in and get it, what happens? So, the reason you consent to nothing is that an officer, especially an officer with something like a rapid offender control unit, or a street crimes unit might get a little bit too enthusiastic about their job and start searching your vehicle anyway.
Now, if they find something and you’re not saying anything, they might say “If you admit to this, we might not arrest you today”, etc. You say nothing, take the arrest, you go, you bond out, spend a couple of hours in jail. Later, down the road, an attorney can file a motion to suppress you. And if it’s a good motion to suppress, the whole case might get thrown out. So, don’t give away that good defense later.
