DNA testing company Ancestry.com declined police access after being served a search warrant last year, according a transparency report released last week and obtained by BuzzFeed News.

The report revealed records of the company’s insubordination when police requested to access its data for investigative genetic genealogy.

“Ancestry challenged the warrant on jurisdictional grounds and did not provide any customer data in response,” the transparency report said.
