ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Several convenience stores in St. Louis and St. Louis County are being raided today by federal agents and local law enforcement.
In one instance, an ATM was taken.
In a statement sent to KMOX, the Department of Homeland Security – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released the following statement:
“Federal special agents with ICE’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), with additional federal, state and local law enforcement partners, are conducting a law enforcement operation in and around St. Louis on May 23. As this operation involves an on-going investigation no further details are publicly available at this time.”
Authorities say this is a criminal investigation, not an immigration matter.
The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is also involved in the investigation.
