Dozens of police officers, sheriff's deputies and D-E-A agents searched the Black Angus Businessmen's Private Club just before 11 last night.
Some people were taken from the building in handcuffs, though it's unclear at this time how many people were arrested.

((It is still not classified as a crime or a murder case...as the medical examiner continues to study Chandra Levy's remains for the cause of death. And search teams are back at the heavily wooded rock creek park scouring for the even the tiniest of clues, hoping for anything that would help solve the death of the 24-year old intern.


SOT: Charles Ramsey/Chief of Police, Washington, DC

"There's a lot of bits of evidence that has been recovered but it's going to take some analysis in order to find out what we have."
The search so for has turned up a skull, bones, clothing items, tennis shoes As well as a portable radio and earphones, suggesting Levy may have been jogging.
Investigators say this may prompt them to take a second look at a man now serving jail time for attacking two women at knife point, as they jogged in the same park. The attacks happened within months of Levy's disappearance.

SOT: Charles Ramsey/Chief of Police, Washington, DC

" We've spoken with the man once before, if there is a need to reinterview anyone we'll do it.
And authorities say they may also re-interview Gary Condit, the congressman who admitted to police that he and Levy were having an affair, but insists he had nothing to do with her disappearance.
Levy's parents in Modesto California, who were so visible and vocal during the search for their daughter, have avoided the spotlight since learning of her death.
STD UP CLOSE/ But the family is planning a public memorial for Levy next Tuesday in her hometown.))

Vatican rules require bishops that age to offer their resignations.
In the meantime, Weakland has acknowledged that he paid a former theology student 450-thousand dollars to settle a claim of sexual assault dating back more than 20 years.
But Weakland denies ever molesting anyone.
