LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- Metro police officers searched the office and home of Las Vegas Constable John Bonaventura, investigating whether a controversial recording between the constable and a Clark County commissioner was legal.

A profanity-laced phone call between Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins and Bonaventura was made public recently.

Collins said publicly and to Commissioner Steve Sisolak he never gave permission to tape the conversation. 

Under Nevada's wiretapping law, it is illegal to record a phone call unless both parties consent.

Detectives are looking for evidence that would corroborate a violation of the illegal wiretapping law.

Attempts to contact Bonaventura were unsuccessful.

Bonaventura, whose constable’s office was eliminated, lost to Mary Beth Scow for a county commission seat in the Nevada primary this month.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
