|3/21 San Diego, CA: Police Raid Minuteman Founder's Home

Police Raid Minuteman Founder's Home
Officials Say Warrants Connected To Vandalism On Migrant Camp

NBC San Diego (CA)
SAN DIEGO -- Detectives from the San Diego Police Department searched the home of one of the founders of an anti-illegal immigrant group on Wednesday.
Officials said the search warrant served at Minutemen founder Jeff Schwilk's Oceanside home was "granted as part of the investigation into the migrant camp vandalism that occurred on Jan. 27, 2007."
Officers also searched the Rancho Peñasquitos home of Julie Adams, a locally based illegal-immigrant activist.
Police said on Wednesday that they have made no arrests yet in connection to the case.
In February, detectives raided the home of the group's former spokeswoman and chief videographer, Christie Czajkowski. Police seized her computers, cameras and footage that were recorded of migrant camps, day laborers, marches and rallies.
In an exclusive interview, Czajkowski told NBC 7/39, "It's a blessing in disguise, because it's going to (dis)prove all these false allegations."
A witness to the vandalism at the Rancho Peñasquitos migrant camp in January told police he recognized one of the six people involved.
In the past, Minutemen have shown up at other migrant camps to document conditions there.
Schwilk told NBC 7/39 in February "there's nothing there on Czajkowski's video that implicates the Minutemen." He later sent out an e-mail telling Minutemen supporters that he knows nothing about the attack.
Police are urging anybody with information about the case to call 858-538-8000 or Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at 888-580-TIPS. Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest in connection with the case.
