There is no legal requirement that signatures be an identical match. They should, of course, be reasonably similar, just as you would expect the signatures of any other individual to be similar. And yes, the list of evidence is a listing of every item of evidence that was accumulated in the investigation of the matter.

He said that it was a burnt out tag light that got me stopped then i got in the paper work that it was a drug investigation how can it be both.
As I'm sure you can understand, I cannot possibly know what was in the mind of the officer. However, having read hundreds, perhaps thousands, of police reports, I can speculate. As to that, police officers often suspect a person of being involved in drug sales. But, if they have not established reasonable suspicion of criminal activity, they may look for a reason to detain the person. A traffic stop is often used as a pretext to come into contact with the person and, hopefully, to search them and find drugs. So long as the traffic stop is legitimate, this is perfectly lawful.
