I don't believe that a warrant should be required for this because the computer's owner has given permission for the technician to go into the computer. That would be like getting invited into a Ariel Castro's home and discovering three women chained up. Would you have an obligation to report it?
18 U.S. Code § 4 - Misprision of felony
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
I would not report the coke if I were the plumber. I would report child porn if I found it during the normal course of my computer work.
