The manhunt for accused cop killer Christopher Dorner has led to the raid of a hotel in Tijuana, Mexico, just across the border from San Diego.

Investigators raided the Hotel Tapatio in Tijuana on Monday after someone reported seeing Dorner, a former Los Angeles police officer wanted for murder, on the property, according to KGTV-TV.

Twenty officers combed the site, but found no signs that Dorner was there, according to Alfredo Arenas, international liaison for the Baja California State Preventive Police.

Arenas said that the high profile case and $1 million award for capture are having an effect on locals.

"People are just calling in every time they see an African American," he said.

It is unknown whether Dorner has crossed over into Mexico or is planning to go there, but the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency said Monday it would be heightening inspections for vehicles heading into Mexico, according to KTTV-TV.

The manhunt for Dorner, 33, began last Wednesday when he was named the suspect in the Orange County murders of a former Los Angeles police captain's daughter and her fiance the previous weekend. Hours after police announced they were looking for him, Dorner first fired at two LAPD officers, then ambushed the Riverside officers.
