Search warrant served at home of Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl

Investigators from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department executed a search warrant Wednesday morning at the Santa Monica home of County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl.

The reason for the search was not immediately known. However, 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.

Kuehl was home at the time when investigators arrived around 7 a.m. Wednesday and spoke to reporters outside shortly afterward.

“This strikes me as being part of a sort of bogus, non-investigation. There is no investigation going on that would support this warrant,” Kuehl said.

Authorities also served a warrant at the Los Angeles Metro Headquarters building.
