A warrant signed on January 5th, 2010 to search Weibo Ludwig’s farm was released Tuesday.
 
The warrant obtained by the Vancouver Sun states the RCMP were looking for bomb-making materials, computer and audio/visual equipment and station.  
 
A photo in the documents released shows a boot foot print that police say was found near one of the bombing sites.  Police also spent time looking for boots that matched the tread pattern.
 
The warrant also included items like:
 
— An ink-jet printer
— Computers and electronic storage devices
— Red and blue pens
— White envelopes with blue privacy printing on the inside
— White paper
— Canadian flag stamps
— Audio and/or video recordings of interviews with police or others in relation to the oil and gas industry
— Video or photos of oil and gas sites
— Audio recordings of anybody at Trickle Creek
— Writings or documents related to the oil and gas industry or bomb making
— Explosives, detonators or evidence of either
— PVC pipe used to modify or build explosive devices.
 
Police started searching the Trickle Creek property on Friday January 5th.  At the time Ludwig was arrested, but later released after the Crown wouldn’t approve charges.
 
Other documents released show another search warrant was obtained for phone records.  The warrant was for two specific cell phones belonging to Weibo Ludwig and his long time friend Richard Boonstra.
