Court IV cited unidentified sources as saying the search warrant was tied to sexual-abuse allegations brought by a 12- or 13-year-old boy. But there was no immediate confirmation from authorities.
More than 20 investigators from the Santa Barbara County
sheriff’s and district attorney’s offices served a warrant as part of an “ongoing criminal investigation,” Sgt. Chris Pappas said. No immediate arrests were made.
The district attorney’s office had no comment.
Jackson and his three young children were in Las Vegas, where Jackson is making a video, Jack- . son’s spokesman said.

Britain has 9,000 soldiers in Iraq, the largest non-American force in the coalition.
In a speech Wednesday at Whitehall Palace, Bush planned to argue that war is the correct path when all other means have failed, a senior administration official told reporters.
