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.
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.
