Re: cars with hidden spaces.
If the cops found it by a plain sight observation as they claim, then it was not hidden, and therefore legal.
And if it is illegal for a felon to be in possession of a hidden space, barring having finger prints inside the space, a plausible deniability of knowledge of the space is granted by the police assertion that it was ‘hidden’.
