I forgot to add this sentence. I'm unsure on the use of the preposition "in". Do you think I can omit it?

The new parents checked (in) their bags for cigarettes and listened to their songs to see if they contained bad language.

  • English -

    You don't need the word "in." The verb could also be any of these:
    searched
    went through
    looked through
