DEARBORN (WWJ) – FBI agents were seen removing boxes from a Dearborn home during an evening raid.

Federal agents acknowledged they were involved in the hours-long search late Thursday on Johnson St., near Ford Rd. and Schaefer, although they didn’t provide any details.

A source talking to WWJ Newsradio 950’s Jon Hewett said the raid was connected to an investigation involving “national security,” but would not say if anyone was arrested.

The Detroit Free Press reported the raid involved an incident that “apparently happened out of state” in which suspects were tracked to the Detroit area.

Neighbors tell Hewett the couple living in the home has been there for two our three years. There was no answer to knocks at the door in Friday.

FBI spokesman Tim Wiley said there’s no threat to public safety, according to the Associated Press.

Authorities are expected to release more information about the case at a later time.
