You must establish to the magistrate's satisfaction that there is probable cause to believe that the item you are looking for is in the place you wish to search. Your request and warrant should be limited by the item(s) you are seeking to find. For example, if you are searching for a stolen car, you probably have to work to justify seaching inside dresser drawers. The magistrate will be evaluating many things including the type, quality and reliability of the information you are basing your request for a warrant upon.
