The ATF executed a search warrant at a home owned by a Pasadena police officer on Thursday.
The officer is on paid administrative leave pending an internal affairs investigation, CBSLA.com reports.
“The ATF told [Pasadena Police] Chief [Phillip] Sanchez its investigation was unrelated to the officer’s duties with the department,” William Boyer, spokesman for Pasadena, wrote in a news release.
Federal agents were spotted loading dozens of gun cases from the officer’s home in Sierra Madre.
“The officer was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of an internal affairs review per department policy,” Boyer said. “The officer has not been arrested nor have there been any charges filed against the officer at this point.”
