           The court may permit the defendant to pay any fine, 
        assessment, surcharge, attorney reimbursement obligation, or

        assessed by the credit card company shall be borne by the

        amended to read: 
           626.11 [ISSUANCE OF WARRANT.] 
           If the judge is satisfied of the existence of the grounds 
        of the application, or that there is probable cause to believe 
        their existence, the judge must issue a signed search warrant, 
        naming the judge's judicial office, to a peace officer in the 
        judge's county having jurisdiction in the area where the place 
        to be searched is located, to an agent of the bureau of criminal 
        apprehension, or to an agent of the division of alcohol and 
        gambling enforcement who is a licensed peace officer as defined 
        in section 626.84, subdivision 1, paragraph (c).  The warrant 
        shall direct the officer or agent to search the person or place 
        named for the property or things specified, and to retain the 
        property or things in the officer's or agent's custody subject 
        to order of the court issuing the warrant. 
           Sec. 3.  Minnesota Statutes 2000, section 626.13, is

           626.13 [SERVICE; PERSONS MAKING.] 
           A search warrant may in all cases be served anywhere within 
        the issuing judge's county jurisdiction by any of the officers 
        mentioned in its directions, but by no other person, except in 
        aid of the officer on the officer's requiring it, the officer 
        being present and acting in its execution.  If the warrant is to 
        be served by an agent of the bureau of criminal apprehension, an 
        agent of the division of alcohol and gambling enforcement, a 
        state patrol trooper, or a conservation officer, the agent, 
        state patrol trooper, or conservation officer shall notify the 
        chief of police of an organized full-time police department of 
        the municipality or, if there is no such local chief of police, 
        the sheriff or a deputy sheriff of the county in which service 
        is to be made prior to execution.
