The department said it wasn’t involved, and wouldn’t give us any information.

One neighbor said her husband heard loud noises around 6:00 Thursday morning, and called police.

“They said, the FBI is there and what you heard they said were flash grenades. Flash grenades they called them. Those are set off to stun somebody, make it hard for them to get away, make it hard for them to react,” said Becky Post.

We’re not showing the house involved, until we confirm it’s the home the FBI searched.

We’ll bring you more information when it becomes available.
