The Archdiocese of Detroit, and dioceses in Gaylord, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Marquette and Saginaw said their offices were served search warrants Wednesday morning from Attorney General Bill Schuette.
Schuette’s office announced last month that it would be looking into possible sexual abuse by priests in the state’s seven dioceses.
CNN has reached out to Schuette’s office for comment.
