Police search Jewish sect's Ontario apartments

Legal counsel for an ultra-Orthodox Jewish sect says Quebec authorities have conducted a search warrant at the Lev Tahor apartments just north of Chatham, Ontario.

Patricia Duffield says unknown Quebec authorities and Chatham-Kent police arrived at the residences Wednesday evening.

Duffield says police had a sealed search warrant and were looking for computers and electronics in regards to an ongoing criminal investigation.

No information was provided by either Chatham-Kent police or the Quebec authorities due to the sealed warrant.

Members of Lev Tahor moved to Chatham-Kent from Ste-Agathe in November, citing pressures from the Quebec education system as the reason for leaving.

An Ontario judge will decide on February 3rd if the children will remain in Chatham-Kent, or be sent back to Quebec to be placed in foster care.
