HOUSTON (AP) - Police are searching the Houston home of Robert Durst after the 71-year-old real estate heir was arrested in New Orleans over the weekend.

Durst is charged with murder in a Los Angeles killing 15 years ago, and has been suspected - but never charged - in the disappearance of his first wife in New York. In 2003, he was acquitted of murder in a dismemberment death in Texas.

Houston police and the Harris County district attorney's office deferred questions Tuesday to the Los Angeles Police Department. Harris County district attorney spokesman Jeff McShan said LAPD contacted his office last week. McShan would not elaborate on what was discussed.

Tuesday afternoon, a marked Houston police car and several unmarked cars were in front of a 17-story building where Durst has three condominiums.
