— Two knives and three sections of rope were among the items Norman police seized last week from a white Toyota that also contained the body of Lester Hobbs, the man authorities think abducted and killed 7-year-old Aja Johnson.

The Cleveland County District Court today released the search warrants for the car and the field on which it was found, in the northeast corner of SH 9 and 108th Avenue in rural southeast Norman. The court also released the documents that inventory what police seized from the searches.

Norman Detective Lori Burks requested the warrants March 29, the day the car was found by landowner Gerald Stotts. Aja's body was found nearby.

According to the documents, detectives searched the car until April 1 and completed the report on their field search Thursday.

Among the items found in the field were a red plastic candy bag, a piece of blue fabric, a silver sequined blouse, elementary notepaper with writing, an old gray shirt, a hunting boot and a few car-related items. has disabled the comments for this article.
