19 Action News Reporter Ed Gallek is learning more about how investigators are gathering evidence in the case against Ariel Castro, the man accused of kidnapping and raping three women held against their will for years.

Investigators searched Ariel Castro's three vehicles on Thursday and now, the Ohio Attorney General's Office has been brought into the case.

19 Action News has learned the AG's Office has been requested to test and analyze the evidence collected by the FBI and the Cleveland Police.

Investigators went through the vehicles at a Cleveland Police impound lot.
