FBI Agents Raiding Conn. Fire Department

About a half dozen FBI agents are searching a Connecticut firehouse.

The raid at the Middlebury Volunteer Fire Company may involve financial records, according to the Republican-Herald.

Details on the raid have not been released, and an FBI agent at the scene said he couldn't say why they are there. However, photos show boxes being carried out of the firehouse.

Fire Chief Paul Perrotti explained he has nothing to hide.

Perrotti said agents entered the unlocked firehouse in the early morning, then called him to it about 8 a.m.

He told the reporters the raid was the result of a complaint “that there was stuff down here financially that wasn't right..."

A computer and financial statements were listed in the court document, he said.

“I had the opportunity of not coop with them and seeking counsel,” Perrotti said. “I'm cooperating fully because I have nothing to hide here.”
