The FBI and Indiana State Police raided the Lake County Sheriff’s office Thursday morning.
The U.S. Attorney’s office for the Northern District of Indiana confirmed that law enforcement executed search warrants on the offices at the Lake County Government Center in Crown Point.
Indiana State police said they assisted the FBI on executing the search warrant. An FBI spokesperson declined to comment on the nature of the investigation.
The Times of Northwest Indiana reports that federal agents and state police entered the building with dollies and ordered employees to leave.
