An arrest warrant authorizes the police to enter a property without a search warrant provided they have probable cause to believe the wanted person is there.
Therefore, they are entitled to seize the contraband they find in plain view
Your question says, "to" my house, not "in" my house. So the general answer is that law enforcement can go anywhere that regular visitors (ex. garbage men, postal workers, the general public, etc.) can go without a warrant. What they see (or smell) while there is generally considered the "in plain view" exception to the warrant requirement. As usual, it really depends on the specific facts. It would be best for you to hire a Criminal Defense attorney in your area. Best of luck!
