Police said they had arrested an outgoing Las Vegas-area elected official in a local investigative reporter's death.
Investigators with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department searched the home of Clark County public administrator Robert Telles on Wednesday morning.
Officials sent a statement confirming officers were serving search warrants related to the homicide of investigative reporter Jeff German.

German was found stabbed to death outside his home on Sept. 3.
Wednesday, crews witnessed officers going in and out of Telles' home.
In a public update on Tuesday, Capt. Dori Koren shared new photos of a vehicle believed to be connected to German's killing: A red or maroon 2007-2014 GMC Yukon Denali with chrome handles, a sunroof, and a luggage rack.
A vehicle parked in the driveway at Telles' home appeared similar to the vehicle in photos Koren shared.
German, an investigative reporter for the Las Vegas Review-Journal, published several stories about Telles. Telles has publicly stated negative things about German and his reporting in the past.
Earlier this week, police shared photos of a potential suspect who was seen near German's home, wearing a large-brimmed straw hat and a long-sleeved orange construction shirt.
In a statement to the media on Wednesday, officials didn't specify where they were searching.
"No further information will be provided at this time," they said.
