Without more facts I can't give you a definitive answer but it certainly sounds suspicious to me. Property seized in a search is held by the police during investigation. It is not immediately returned to the purported owner. And what was a Kern County Sheriff doing conducting a search in LA County? Talk to a lawyer.
My colleague is correct - without a complete review of the facts it is impossible to stare whether the search was illegal. You need an attorney to review this and represent your boyfriend.
