For starters, I live in a rural area, my actual house is a about a quarter mile from the nearest public road, which happens to be about a half mile long, winding, dirt road that ends in a circle right where my private drive starts. So i am almost a mile away from any kind of paved/commonly traveled road. My house is completely hidden from view from the public road by trees/landscaping and whatnot. My two friends who are over and I had been toking a bong and rolled a few Js on my pool patio which is on the backside of the house. We go inside to cook some chicken nuggets and chill out for a while, this is about 1:20 AM. We have about a bowls-worth of weed left so we load it up in a pipe and go out to the deck to smoke. When we walk outside though, there is a Sheriff sitting in my private drive (although not in the driveway, just in the gravel drive). We see him before we get into plain view, so we immediately turn around and go back inside unnoticed. The time when we first saw him was about 2 AM, we hunker down and hold the fort until and about ten minutes after we went inside we see a flashlight beam flashing around my deck and my backyard, but it only lingered for a couple minutes. We finally get ballsy and sneak a peak out the window and he is there at 3:15, we check back at around 3:45 and he finally has left. He never knocked on the door or attempted to make contact with the owner of the house. What in the hell kind of police operation is that? I still am just baffled as to why he was here, and what the hell he was doing shining his light around checking out my deck and my fucking backyard. My nearest neighbor is a quarter mile or so away and we had no music playing or anything of the sort, just 3 guys smoking and chillin'
