Posted at 10:25 AM, Mar 11, 2020

San Luis Obispo County officials say the FBI served a search warrant at the County Government Center Wednesday morning.

The search warrant was served at 7:10 a.m. at the building on the corner of Santa Rosa Rd. and Monterey St. in downtown San Luis Obispo, according to a press release.

County officials say they are complying with the warrant and the government center remains open to the public.

"We are sharing with the public what little information we can," said County Administrative Officer Wade Horton in the press release. "The FBI warrant is under seal, and we have no further information to provide, as we are cooperating with the investigation."

According to the FBI, the warrant seeks evidence in an ongoing investigation; however, because the affidavit is sealed by a judge, FBI officials say they are unable to comment on the nature of the investigation. They did say no arrests were planned Wednesday.
