|UPDATED: FBI searches OPSO|
At least a half dozen FBI agents showed up at the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office in Monroe late Tuesday afternoon and initiated a search of Sheriff's Office files.
FBI agents remained at the Sheriff's Office until at least 2 a.m. Wednesday.
"We were there as part of an ongoing investigation," said Robert King, the Supervisory Senior Resident Agent for the FBI's Alexandria and Monroe offices.
King spoke with The Ouachita Citizen Wednesday morning.
When asked if the FBI's investigation was criminal in nature, King said, "I can only say it is an ongoing investigation."
King also declined to say whether the FBI executed a search warrant when agents arrived at the Sheriff's Office.
Contacted Tuesday night around 9:45 p.m. while FBI agents were in his office, Sheriff Royce Toney said, "It would be inappropriate for me to comment at this time."
Toney did not say whether the FBI had executed a search warrant. He also did not disclose what the FBI was doing in his office.
Toney was in Vidalia in Concordia Parish earlier Tuesday for a sheriff's conference. He returned to his office in Monroe not long after FBI agents arrived at the Sheriff's Office.
