The apartment of the "Adorable Deplorable" was raided and searched by the FBI on Monday, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Hairstylist and far-right gay Trump supporter Kristopher Dreww, of Huntington Beach, CA, took part in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. capitol, as EDGE reported, and then posted a video to social media bragging about it. Later, Dreww said he had received death threats and feared his salon would go under because of his involvement, which — conveniently enough, later on — he minimized as merely eating sandwiches on the capitol lawn with a nurse and teacher while seditionists looted the capitol.

An FBI spokesperson told the LA Times that they had removed items from Dreww's apartment but didn't specify what exactly. No arrest was made.

Earlier this month, Dave Min (D-Irvine), the California State Senator representing Huntington Beach, said "it seems nearly certain that Californians, including some residing in Orange County and the 37th District I represent, took part in the planning of these crimes" and called for those who participated in the insurrection to be prosecuted.
