Undercover Metro officers carry away evidence from the office of Las Vegas Township Constable John Bonaventura Tuesday, June 17, 2014. Detectives were searching for evidence of illegal use of a listening device.

Metro Police searched the offices of the Las Vegas Township constable as well as one other location in connection with an ongoing investigation into Constable John Bonaventura, Metro announced this evening.

Metro’s Criminal Intelligence Section served two search warrants today, one at the constable’s offices at 302 E. Carson Ave., and at an undisclosed private residence.

Detectives searched for evidence of illegal use of a listening device, according to a Metro statement.

The investigation revolves around a surreptitously recorded phone call between Bonaventura and Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins. Nevada law prohibits the unauthorized, surreptitious intrusion of privacy by listening device, Metro said in the statement.

No arrests have been made, according to Metro.
