Several police officers in Durham, N.C., reportedly got into homes and searched them by telling residents police had received 911 hang-up calls from their addresses, according to news reports, Washington Post reports.

The tactic, a way around the requirement to get a warrant to search a home, was described in court by a Durham officer identified as A.B. Beck by IndyWeek. Beck admitted during testimony he used the tactic earlier this year and, as a result, found two marijuana blunts and a marijuana grinder.
