Attorneys representing Jose Guerena's widow, Vanessa, filed a motion Thursday asking that the Pima County Sheriff's Department return some of the property seized in the court-ordered raid last month.
Those items include her wedding ring, Jose Guerena's military medals, the couple's vehicle, a laptop computer, and legal documents including passports, driver's licenses and immigration papers, according to court documents.
These items are not evidence of involvement in either drug trafficking or money laundering and fall outside the scope of a search warrant, attorneys wrote on the filing. Unless those items were described in the warrant or officials can show probable cause, Guerena's attorneys want those items back.
The wedding ring and military medals were not listed as evidence seized from the Redwater Drive home in documents released Thursday.
