In Connection With the Shooting in “Rust,” a Warrant Has Been Issued for Alec Baldwin’s Phone


TAOS, New Mexico (Reuters)-The authorities on Thursday said they’re currently working with the police as they’re securing and working to get Baldwin phone from actor Alec Baldwin’s cellphone as a pursuit against the fatal shooting of a cinematographer on the set of the Western movie “Rust.”

Then investigated the American state capitol Sheriff’s Office and New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney’s Office saying that they’re “actively working” with the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department, New York, and Baldwin’s lawyers to induce anything on the phone per their investigation, which is reported to a handout.

The statement came three weeks after the sheriff’s office received a search warrant to seize Baldwin’s Apple iPhone to appear at text messages, emails, and other information stored on the device, in line with court documents.


A spokesman for the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department and a lawyer for Baldwin didn’t reply to requests for comment. The “30 Rock” actor has said he was holding a revolver on the film set when it went off during rehearsal in October, firing a live round that killed Halyna Hutchins.

The actor said during a television interview that he never pulled the trigger and denied any involvement within the shooting. He said he had no idea how a live round got onto the set.

The New Mexico’s prosecutor overseeing the case has said some of those who handled guns on the set may face criminal charges over Hutchins’ death.

One of Santa Fe’s detectives said she sought the warrant for Baldwin’s phone after she requested it voluntarily and “was instructed to accumulate a warrant,” per an affidavit.

The affidavit of the suspects, victims, and witnesses “often make and/or receive telephone calls and/or messages before, during, and/or after the commission of a crime(s). Such information, if it exists, is additional material and relevant to the present investigation.”

Police obtained a warrant of arrest on Thursday for Baldwin’s cellphone within the investigation of the fatal shooting in October of a cinematographer on the New Mexico set of his Western movie “Rust,” as court documents showed.
