The Indiana supreme court in a recent decision involving a drug case where the police searched a house with the permission of a houseguest and found illegal drugs, decided that a casual house guest did not have authority to allow the search. The decision may have been different if the houseguest had lived there for a significant period of time and had joint access/control over the home with the owner. See Bradley v. State of Indiana ruling.
