Search warrants; customer records from financial institutions. Provides that a search warrant for records pertaining to a customer of a financial institution, money transmitter, commercial business that provides credit reports, or credit card issuer may be executed in the Commonwealth by hand, mail, commercial delivery service, facsimile, or other electronic means. The bill requires the executing officer to file the warrant in the circuit court clerk's office where the warrant was executed within three days after receiving the ordered records. The bill eliminates the requirement that a copy of the warrant be filed where the warrant was issued for all search warrants. Read the Bill »
