Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Public Corruption Unit served search warrants at multiple locations in connection with an ongoing public corruption investigation. Investigators searched the Santa Monica home of County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl Wednesday morning. Los Angeles Times Published a photo of a barefooted Supervisor Kuehl being escorted by LASD deputies.

“#LASD Multiple Search Warrants Served Today in Connection With Ongoing Public Corruption Investigation,” LASD posted on the department’s social media platforms. “Today, detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Public Corruption Unit served search warrants at multiple locations in connection with an ongoing public corruption investigation. Those locations included the homes of Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and Los Angeles County Civilian Oversight Commissioner Patricia “Patti” Giggans. Also searched were offices located at: Los Angeles County Hall of Administration, Peace Over Violence Headquarters, and LA Metro Headquarters. The investigation has been shared with a federal agency and they continue to monitor.
This remains an active investigation and we are unable to comment further at this time, although in full transparency the search warrant has been posted online at LASD.org.”

According to reports, the Sheriff’s Department has been investigating the non-profit, Peace Over Violence, which is run by a close associate of Kuehl’s, Alene Tchekmedyian of the Los Angeles Times reports.

The investigation involves allegations that the nonprofit was improperly awarded a series of contracts pushed by Kuehl’s office.

The investigators arrived around 7 a.m. Wednesday and spoke to reporters outside shortly afterward.

Sheila Kuehl told Fox11 Los Angeles that she had no knowledge of such a contract. “The only thing they’re going to find in my house is maybe a few cat videos and those kinds of things that regular people have.”

She said she heard from county council last night that she got a tip from Max Huntsman that the search would happen this morning. She also received a call from LA TIMES last week and it didn’t happen so she said she thought the search was bogus.
