OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) -- A federal search warrant issued in the James Everett Dutschke investigation focused on electronic items taken from his home during an investigation into sexual molestation charges in January.
The 31-page application for a search warrant filed with the U. S. magistrate listed a laptop computer, mini laptop computer, four cellphones, and several storage devices seized and stored by Tupelo police following Dutschke's arrest in January.
The magistrate okayed the warrant on April 24.
Dutschke, 41, was originally charged with two counts of sexual molestation in that investigation but has since been indicted by a Lee County grand jury on three counts of fondling.
In an affadavit made public Tuesday, agents say they found evidence someone downloaded information related to the storage and detection of ricin onto the laptop in December.
The warrant also includes a search of internet records and the IP address.
Dutschke is scheduled to return to federal court on Thursday morning for a prelminary hearing.
