Just a warning about smoking weed in a room

I had got a room for a friend of mine last week at the Palazzo. He was staying there with a girl. They clouded out the room. She called the bellman to come get her bags cause she was leaving, when he got there she sent him away cause she decided she was gonna stay. A little while later she called the bellman again cause she was gonna leave, he came up and she sent him away again and said she was gonna stay. A little while later the bellman comes up to the room again and this time he is with 3 security guards. My friend answers the door and they say they can smell weed and can they come in the room, my friend told them he would prefer it if they don't. They said well we werent really asking you, this is private property so were coming in. They proceeded to search his room and all his belongings. He told me at this time 2 more security guards were in the room bringing the total to 5. After they found all the rest of his stuff in the desk and in his bags they called LV Metro. He was detained in the in house holding area of Palazzo for 8 hours, then he was booked in to CCDC and charged with a pretty big felony for what they found in his room.

So just a warning to everyone on here thats comin to Vegas, if your gonna smoke in your room make sure you use the towels under the door and do not call for bag assistance.

I totally agree, I've already told him how stupid he is. He was pretty high and really tired from lack of sleep, but that wasn't the point of the thread. The point was just to put a warning out there that security can come into your room even if you don't give them permission, search said room and your personal property and have you arrested.

Re: Just a warning about smoking weed in a room

Shouldn't the title of the thread be, "Don't Piss Off the Bellman by Calling Him Twice and Not Tipping?"

I'm sure if your friend gave him $10 each time, you could call him every 15 minutes and he'd never call security.

Re: Just a warning about smoking weed in a room

Your friend just needs to get a competent lawyer who will have all of the evidence thrown out of court and the case dismissed. This is a pretty blatant violation of the Fourth Amendment, which pertains to any location where an individual expects a right to privacy, including a hotel room. There has been plenty of case law on this matter for over 50 years. Here is but one example that is clearly on point:

And here is a more recent case from the State of Washington:

Hahaha nice, I told my friend the same exact thing. If he would have at least tipped the guy he wouldnt have gotten the felony or the 10k bail! But who knows, he said the security guys were really giddy when they found the other stuff in his room, in his words "Like little ****ing girls". Just be careful clouding out the room. Who knows, maybe they get a bonus for getting someone busted on property with drugs.

Re: Just a warning about smoking weed in a room

I think they do. I'm pretty sure they get like $100 dollars or something. It's the same as if they bust someone who is on the "do not admit" list or has joined the voluntary exclusion program. I work at a casino and thats how they do it here.

Thanks for the links MMOB, I read them and will print them out for him. He does have a very good lawyer from his previous arrest. Like I said he's not the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but I can't believe they actually came in his room and searched all his **** after he told them no.

Re: Just a warning about smoking weed in a room

if they touched his things when he said not to touch his things (assuming they didn't request he remove his things from their property before touching it and he refused) then they most certainly violated multiple laws.


actually, if they were police officers moonlighting as security guards, then they actually can go through your backpack when they smell weed coming from it, because a police officer is never really off-duty.

but i assume these are just hired guards without any real jurisdiction and if that's the case, then they definitely cannot touch you or your stuff without your expressed permission.

No, they can't.

At least not without first obtaining a warrant.

I think your warning is really not to piss off the bellman.

The weed smell was totally permeating the room, I was up there earlier and actually said something to him about it.

He told them not to come in, and he told me they said "well were not really asking, since it's private property were coming in". I can guarantee that my friend did not give them permission to search. He said there were 5 security guards, 2 big monsters blocking the door and the other 3 were looking through his ****. They found some things in the desk drawer, then they found a lot more in his bag. Then they called Metro.

No warrant was ever obtained or presented to my friend. He also got 86'd from the property, they packed up all the bags and after I picked him up at CCDC he went back and got his bags back.
