DCR 3.313 Filing of Search Warrants
At the time of issuing a search warrant the judge shall retain possession of a signed copy of the warrant and of the executed supporting affidavit or other evidence presented in support of the warrant. Upon the return being made as provided by law, the issuing judge will place the search warrant and supporting material along with the return in a search warrant envelope with the judges name and date of issuance of the search warrant. The envelope shall then be sealed shut and delivered by the judge or at his or her direction to the clerk of the district court. In the absence of the clerk or vacancy of the office, the envelope shall be delivered to the chief judge who shall thereafter provide for the storage of the envelope in the locked storage facility. In the event neither is available then the issuing judge shall retain the same in his or her possession in a secure place until the same may be delivered as otherwise provided herein.
