We have carefully considered the contention of appellant that the prosecution here arose out of the illegal finding of marijuana as the fruits of an unlawful search. We conclude that, under the undisputed circumstances of this case, including the conceded right of the motel operator to enter the room for house-keeping purposes, no Fourth Amendment rights of the appellants were invaded. The subsequent arrest, at a time the officers knew the appellants were in possession of the marijuana, was fully warranted.


The judgment is affirmed.
