You're right Harry. Some judges seem to have a somewhat broader definition of probable cause than others. Within reason of course. Generally the process involves law enforcement giving the judge an explanation of why they think the individual in question has a high probability of having committed the crime in question.

There are some exceptions to the need for a warrant. One being if the evidence in question is in plain sight while an arrest is being made. Or if the police are there for another legitimate reason. There are other exceptions and I am sure some of our legal types could think of many more.
