BATON ROUGE - Hearings over a search warrant connected to fired Baton Rouge Police Chief Dewayne White are scheduled to resume this afternoon.

On Wednesday White's attorney Jill Craft said she'd subpoenaed Detective Cleveland Thomas, who had issued a search warrant to search the cellphone of Kim McCants, a Zachary woman investigators said regularly contacted White on his city-parish cellphone.

Investigators searched McCants' home and took her phone as part of a criminal investigation to find White's city-parish phone.

Craft accused the detective of "warrant shopping" with different judges after his first attempts to get a warrant failed and asked Judge Chip Moore to quash his warrant.

The hearing is scheduled to resume at 2 p.m.. News 2's Michael Shingleton will have details from the proceeding tonight.
