Probable Cause

Here is an exhaustive list of what can grant probable cause (the right to search a person and their vehicle without consent). Keep in mind, there may be gray area situations which will grant probable cause that do not fall under this list.

Illegal Areas

  • Seeing a person inside of an illegal area
  • Seeing a vehicle inside of an illegal area

$2,500+ bounty

  • A suspect with a bounty of $2,500 or more

Auto Theft

  • Attempted Auto Theft charge ($500)
  • Grand Theft charge ($1,500)
  • Seeing a civilian attempt to lockpick a vehicle, but does not currently have a charge
  • A civilian driving a vehicle not registered to them

Illegal Firearms

  • A civilian carrying an illegal firearm (holstered or actively carrying)

Illegal Vehicles

  • A civilian driving an illegal vehicle:
    • Ifrit
    • Offroad (HMG)
    • Qilin Minigun
    • Jeep Minigun

Evasion of Arrest

  • A suspect fleeing from an officer, either on foot or in a vehicle

Self Incrimination

  • A civilian admitting to a crime
  • Admission to possessing illegal contraband

Note: A civilian incriminating someone other than themselves does not grant probable cause on another person.

Recreational Vehicles (RVs)

  • Seeing an RV emitting smoke will grant probable cause on the vehicle and any person the vehicle is registered to

Keep in mind that the immediate area surrounding an RV emitting smoke is considered an illegal area.

Checkpoints

  • A civilian driving around a manned checkpoint to avoid going through it

Note: civilians have the right to do a 180° turn to avoid a manned checkpoint.

Federal Events

  • Any individual spotted by the Federal Reserve cameras
  • Any individual on the Bank of Altis peninsula during an active Bank Robbery
  • Any individual on the island or the bridges approaching the Prison of Altis during an active Prison Break

Offroading

Offroading by itself does not grant probable cause. Officers may perform a traffic stop and question the suspect about their offroading.

  • If a suspect gives any role play reason as to why they are offroading, probable cause is not granted
  • If the suspect does not give any role play reason as to why they are offroading, probable cause is granted

Police Headquarters

Civilians who enter police headquarters will grant probable cause. The civilian must enter a police headquarters themselves, and not by other means.

Other means includes:

  • Being brought into headquarters in bounty hunter restraints with no prior probable cause
  • Being brought into headquarters in police handcuffs with no prior probable cause
  • Being brought into headquarters in the passenger seat of a vehicle (tell the civilian to leave headquarters and if they do not leave then you gain probable cause).
