SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Federal agents served search warrants today at four locations in San Diego County as part of an investigation into a suspected money laundering conspiracy.

No arrests took place during the financial crimes enforcement operations, according to officials with Homeland Security Investigations, which carried out the raids. A fifth related search took place in the Los Angeles area, according to HSI information officer Lauren Mack.

The spokeswoman said she had no further details to release about the searches, including exactly where they occurred.

According to 10News, federal officers served one of the warrants about 7 a.m. at an El Cajon home. Neighbors described hearing the personnel use a loudspeaker to direct anyone inside the residence to exit.

Eventually, the announcements stopped, and witnesses heard what they described as a small explosion, after which agents entered the home in tactical gear and began removing property from it, 10News reported.
