Supreme Court Limits Cellphone Searches After Arrests

Updated: Wednesday, June 25 2014, 11:26 AM CDT

A unanimous Supreme Court says police may not generally search the cellphones of people they arrest without first getting search warrants.

The justices say cellphones are powerful devices unlike anything else police may find on someone they arrest.

Chief Justice John Roberts says that because the phones contain so much information, police must get a warrant before looking through them.
