TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Officers from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation were executing a search warrant early Wednesday at a residence in central Topeka.

KBI agents were at a home in the 200 block of S.W. Fillmore, in the city’s Ward-Meade neighborhood.

Agents at the scene told 13 NEWS that no injuries had been reported and that there was no threat to the community.

KBI spokeswoman Melissa Underwood said the search warrant was being executed by the KBI’s Northeast Child Victims Task Force.

The Northeast Child Victims Task Force operates in NE Kansas, but also take priority cases outside of the region. Task Force partners include KBI agents, investigators from the Kansas Attorney General’s Office and investigators from the Topeka Police Department.

KBI said NCVTF investigates crimes where children are victimized, and more specifically, where they are sexually or physically abused or exploited.

The Topeka Police Department also was on the scene.

No arrests were made as part of the incident on Wednesday.

This is an ongoing investigation and no further details will be released as KBI wishes to protect the privacy of the child victims involved.
