According to multiple published reports - including one on Gizmodo itself - California's Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team raided Gizmodo editor Jason Chen's home last Friday. Six computers and other equipment was reportedly taken by police, who acted under authority of a search warrant, while Chen was out to dinner. The warrant was issued as part of an ongoing investigation into to Apple iPhone prototype that Chen was formerly in possession of and covered extensively last week on Gizmodo.
While Gizmodo has published legal documents as well as Chen's own account of what happened Friday night and parent company Gawker Media's legal response to the police, the police themselves have yet to detail any specifics as to what exactly they're looking for in and on the equipment seized, and who may be charged with what crimes. The San Mateo County judge who issued the warrant has been quoted as saying Chen's belongings "may have been used" to commit a felony, however.
Apple has not responded to requests for comment from various media outlets.
