According to CBS News, FBI agents and state police raided an evangelists\' headquarters Saturday as part of a child pornography investigation and said they planned to remove several children from the complex, run by a man previously accused of child abuse.

The raid at the Tony Alamo Christian Ministries south of Texarkana started an hour before sunset. Armed guards regularly patrol the ministry headquarters, but there was apparently no resistance as agents moved in.

\"I have not heard of any shots fired,\" state police spokesman Bill Sadler said.

U.S. Attorney Bob Balfe said before the raid that he expected an arrest warrant would be issued later for Alamo.

Alamo wasn\'t on site and is at an undisclosed location in Santa Clarita, California, reports CBS affiliate KTHV-TV in Little Rock.
