  • No, the only time you are subject to an unexplained search is in jail, where your privacy is none because those rights aren't there. Even if they have no warrant, but have probable cause, they have to tell you why.
  • "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized." Amendment IV of the Constitution. So no.
  • Who does "their" refer to? If a person is on probation, the cops can search that person for any reason. The cops do not need to tell them what they are looking for. In fact, the cops do not even need to be looking for something in particular. If a cop pulls over a person on probation, they are likely to search the vehicle out of course, even if they do not suspect illegal activity. They cops can search all property in the possession of the probationer. Thus, if the probationer owns the business, the business can be searched. However, if it is not the probationers business, then a warrant would be required.
