TEHACHAPI, Calif. (KGET) — Police served search warrants at two homes Sunday in connection with the fraudulent use of credit cards to buy thousands of dollars in electrical tools and clothing. No arrests were made and the investigation was ongoing.

Computers and cellphones that may have been used to buy the items were seized from the Pepper Drive location.
