CLEVELAND - FBI and police are searching a house down the street from the home in Cleveland where three kidnapped women were rescued this week.
The agents went into what appeared to be an abandoned home at 2221 Seymour Avenue at about 4 p.m. Wednesday. The house is three doors down from Ariel Castro's house and has boarded-up windows.
The agents brought a K-9 into the house with them. They were also wearing white lab coats.
Investigators then proceeded to take the K-9 over to Castro's house at 2207 Seymour Avenue and searched under the porch.
Crews also brought shovels to the scene, but it wasn't clear where they were going to dig.
Police have not yet said whether this is connected with the investigation into three women who were rescued Monday by a neighbor after being kept in captivity for years.
Castro and his brothers Onil and Pedro were arrested in connection with the kidnappings of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight. Charges are expected to be filed late Wednesday afternoon.
