Federal agents raid Youngstown office building

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Federal investigators are currently conducting a raid on an office building in Youngstown. 

Early Wednesday morning agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Evidence Response Team carried out a search warrant at an medical office on Parmalee Avenue in Youngstown. 

Officials tell 21 News the federal search warrant was issued on behalf of the Inspector General's Office, who has taken the lead on the investigation. 

However, the Ohio Attorney General's Office says agents from their Medicaid Fraud Division are also involved in the raid. 

21 News crews on the scene are being told that investigators are searching for documents dealing with medical healthcare. 

The medical office building, which houses offices for several medical offices, is located directly across the street from the parking lot of St. Elizabeth's Hospital on the north side of Youngstown.  

Agents have not said which office they are investigating. 

Officers from the Cleveland office of the FBI told 21 News that the search warrant is the culmination of ongoing investigations. 

The office of the FBI also says that there will be no arrests made during Wednesday's search and that the investigation will still be ongoing.
