Authorities say police and federal agents are serving search warrants at several locations in an investigation of medical marijuana clinics in and around Las Vegas.

Metro Police Officer Jacinto Rivera said no arrests were made in the raids conducted Wednesday as part of a federal investigation of medical marijuana dispensaries in the area.

U.S. attorney's office spokeswoman Natalie Collins issued a statement saying search warrants and supporting affidavits stemming from the investigation were sealed by federal court order.

"A number of federal search warrants were served and executed today at locations in the Las Vegas Valley in connection with an ongoing law enforcement investigation," Collins said in a statement. "No arrests were made today in connection with these warrants, and the warrants and supporting affidavits are sealed; thus, no additional information can be provided at this time."
