Agents from the FBI and investigators from the Michigan State Police raided the home and the Lansing office of a state senator this morning.
6 News Capitol Correspondent Tim Skubick reports that employees from both agencies were at the office of State Senator Bert Johnson. He’s a Democrat who represents northeast Detroit, Highland Park, Hamtramck, Harper Woods, and all five Grosse Pointe communities, according to a website set up by the Michigan Democrats in the state senate.
State police spokeswoman Shanon Banner told the Associated Press that search warrants were served Monday morning Highland Park home as well as his office.
The site says he’s in his second term representing the 2nd district.
It’s not yet clear why the authorities are there.
