If the items are in plain view of the officer, they can be seized. But police officers can't use a search warrant as a pretext to complete exhaustive searches. It also depends on whether the officers are searching a vehicle or a residence.

Without knowing more about the facts of the case and the warrant at issue, I can't help you more.
