Roommate furious after surprise police search

Rent it Right

Q: I share an apartment with another guy. The police showed up at our door last night, saying that a nearby apartment had been burglarized and asking to be let in to look around. I said OK, and they came in, looked around, and left. My roommate, who wasnt home, is furious with me, and said I had no right to allow the cops to enter. What do you think? –Paul M.
