According to Kirkman, the effort to arrest Paddock was a "larger operation" and involved several major law enforcement agencies.

"They did a search warrant over at his property and there were several different entities involved in this arrest, including LAPD, FBI, Homeland Security and several others," he noted.

"It was special detail…that is all of the information I have at this time."

The investigation into Paddock's alleged child porn crimes reportedly began from a tip received before his brother, Stephen, holed up in the Las Vegas resort Mandalay Bay in early October and shot to death 58 people and injured hundreds more who were attending a country music concert across the street.
