Generally, the police are only permitted to search the place described in the warrant. They are permitted to seize any of the property described in the warrant. However, if the police come across evidence of crime that is not listed in the warrant they can normally legally seize those items too. It is important to remember that no two search warrant cases are alike. It is critical that an attorney analyzes the search warrant and the method the police executed the warrant to determine whether any Constitutional provisions were broken. The law is very strict on what the police can and cannot do when executing a warrant.
