Additionally, the warrant lists the victims and financial institutions of Mr. Friesner's crimes as well as the names of the companies linked to Mr. Friesner by the FBI investigation. Attachment B to the affidavit listed items to be seized, which were basically financial records. A magistrate judge issued the search warrant and the warrant was executed. The return indicates fourteen boxes of documents and miscellaneous items were seized.
