Gill says although the FBI hasn’t made any arrests yet as they did in the Waltz, they had enough evidence to build a search warrant, which involves leg work on the part of investigators. “You have to have reasonable cause, so there’s something there that has precipitated this rather than the FBI idle curiosity,” Gill said.
