Can police seize items that are not listed on a search warrant

This answer was rated:

Can police seize items that are not listed on a search warrant and use them as evidence later? A warrant lists electronic communication devices, photographs, documentation of residency, firearms, and various other very specific items (details including brand name are listed on the warrant). However some notes and letters were also seized. Is this allowed?
Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to help you.

I am sorry to hear about your difficult situation.

As long as, these notes and letters were related to the criminal investigation and were found in the process of the execution of the search warrant, such search and seizure would be allowed and such seized evidence could be used in the criminal case.

I wish you the best of luck!
