New York v. Burger, 482 U.S. 691 (1987)

Search of junk yard for stolen goods

Lower court excluded the evidence in the criminal trial:

"the fundamental defect [of 415-a5] . . . is that [it] authorize[s] searches undertaken solely to uncover evidence of criminality and not to enforce a comprehensive regulatory scheme. The asserted 'administrative schem[e]' here [is], in reality, designed simply to give the police an expedient means of enforcing penal sanctions for possession of stolen property."
