Federal agents have raided an armory owned by security contractor Blackwater Worldwide.
The North Carolina-based company said the raid was part of an investigation into a deal that allowed a local sheriff's office to store high-powered assault rifles at the company's armory at its headquarters in Moyock.
Blackwater spokeswoman Anne Tyrrell says that investigators with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives searched Blackwater's armory Tuesday.

Some good points fellas...The Conspiracy theorist in me gets the creeps that a Merc co. and Sheriff's are being linked together. When we've got paramilitary excercises being carried out on domestic soil and multi-jurisdictional LE operations being funded by DHS grants, things start to be appearing to form a pattern in recent months IMO...
Could turn out to be nothing, but still something to keep an eye on...
