I lost my wallet that had illegal drugs in it. An off-duty cop was security & went thru it-can i be charged w/posession?

Cleveland, OH |

I saw the off-duty cop going thru my wallet when i went back in the store, and i could see him holding up the bag of coke from behind the cust service desk. My id is clearly visible soon as wallet is opened, did he have a right to go thru everything in my wallet? Can they arrest me/charge me w/drug posession when i go back to pick up the wallet? or just send it to police station to be "Picked up"? do i have and privacy or "illegal" search rights?
