BARDSTOWN, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky State Police executed a search warrant at a property in Bardstown on Tuesday.

Three KSP detectives were at the property on Pulliam Avenue, Trooper Jeff Gregory said.

The search was taking place at the home of Brooks Houck's grandmother, Anna Whitesides, according to her attorney.

Houck is the former boyfriend of Crystal Rogers, a Bardstown mother of five who went missing in July of 2015. He is also believed to be the last person who saw Rogers alive and has been named as a suspect in the case by police.

Sherry Ballard, Rogers' mother, watched as troopers come out of the home with evidence bags.

Whitesides attorney, Jason Floyd, told WAVE 3 News the search warrant was specific and related to bullets, guns and reloading equipment.

"Obviously some time and attention form the investigation has gone into that," Floyd said. "At some point, obviously on an older person, it takes its toll."

A total of five warrants have been served the family's properties since the investigation into Rogers' death began, Floyd said.

This is the first by KSP, who are leading the investigation into the shooting death of Tommy Ballard, Crystal's father, who died hunting in November of last year.

"While it is frustrating for her to endure multiple searches over and over and over again," Floyd said. "We used that the law has a job to do."

No other information has been released at this time.
