If any of the information within the requested sealed portion of the Affidavit / Statement of Probable Cause is made public, it will reveal or tend to reveal the identity of any confidential informant(s), impair further related investigations and/or endanger the life of the confidential informant(s). ^ ••. of my -n ORDER x -. Based upon a review of the Search Warrant Affidavit this court finds that there exists an overriding interest that overcomes the right of public access to the record; the overriding interest supports sealing the record; a substantial probability exists that the overriding interest will be prejudiced if the record is not sealed; the proposed sealing is narrowly tailored; an no less restrictive means exist to achieve the overriding interest. Therefore it is ordered that the following portion of the Search Warrant Affidavit / Statement of Probable Cause identified as the "Confidential' Attachment" be sealed and kept in the custody of the Affiant's law enforcement agency and not be made part of the public record until further order of this court or any competent court.
