The FBI has raided the Hammond Police Department and the local Sheriff's Office.
The reason for the raid is unclear, but sources tell WDSU that FBI agents were at both locations. WDSU reached out to Hammond Mayor Pete Panepinto. He declined to comment.
Agents with the FBI were walking in and out of the building, stopping vehicles coming into the area. Sources close to the matter tell WDSU that agent seized cell phones, vehicles and computers.
Anyone who was in the building at the time agents arrived were required to sign a crime scene log to leave. It was also payday for employees and many had to sign the log as well before leaving.
A spokesperson with the FBI said the bureau is "conducting court authorized actions" at the Police Department and the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office.
