PARIS (AP) — French authorities have searched the headquarters of Volkswagen France as part of a local investigation into the emissions testing scandal at the German automaker.

Investigators from France's environment and public health office conducted the searches Friday at Volkswagen France's offices in Villers-Cotterets, 52 miles north of Paris, and seized computer equipment, the Paris prosecutor's office said Sunday.

A spokeswoman for Volkswagen France, Leslie Peltier, confirmed the searches and said Volkswagen is fully cooperating with the police.

Volkswagen has said around 11 million cars worldwide were outfitted with software that enabled them to evade diesel emissions testing.
