COLUMBIA, SC (AP/WIS) - Bullets seized at the home of a man accused in the disappearance of a Columbia teen can be used against him on a separate federal charge.
A federal judge ruled Wednesday that a warrant used to search the home of Freddie Grant was valid.
Grant is charged with kidnapping 15-year-old Gabbiee Swainson, who is still missing. Authorities say Grant took the teen Aug. 18.
Grant is a convicted felon and is not allowed to have the bullets found at his home. The ammunition was found as authorities searched his home for evidence in the teen's disappearance.
Attorney John Delgado had argued that authorities did not give all relevant evidence to the judge who authorized the search warrant.
Shortly after Richland County investigators began trying to determine why the 15-year-old vanished from her home in mid-august, a note turned up close to the kitchen sink.
It read: "I need to bounce out of here."
Delgado suggests the note, in handwriting at least resembling Gabbiee's, was an indication she could have been a runaway. It became part of his argument in an attempt to convince the judge Grant's home was illegally searched.
Grant's trial on the federal charge is set for next month.
