THE TARGET LOCATION

4

The information contained in this affidavit is based upon my personal observations, as well as information provided to me by fellow law enforcement officers

o f

the FBI, information provided b y witness statements, and my experience and ba ckground. Because this affidavit is being submitted for the limited purpose

o f

securing an application for a warrant to search, I have not included each a nd every f act known to me concerning th is investigation. I have set forth only those facts which I believe are necessary to establish probable cause that the residence location will contain evidence that Title

18

U.S.C.

§§

373, 875(c), 922(g), 922(0), and 2332a have been violated .
