Officers from the Metropolitan Police Department executed a search warrant this afternoon at the home of Hakim Sutton, who up until very recently was At-Large Councilmember Michael A. Brown‘s campaign treasurer, according to sources familiar with the ongoing law enforcement investigation.

Brown released a statement today saying that he’d discovered an unnamed aide had been stealing from his campaign account. Brown also said he would be taking over as his campaign’s treasurer.

Sutton has not returned calls seeking comment. An MPD spokeswoman said only that police are conducting an investigation.
