I would advise that you contact a lawyer to attempt to get your items back. Since there was a search warrant executed where you live, it may mean that there is an active investigation and thus it may not be a good idea to speak to law enforcement without representation.

In this case, the agreement prohibits "similar derivative" from being created by the employee.
What are the space, time and content limitations of such clauses? Are there others?
What are legal references to such provisions?
