Officials say there is no ongoing threat to the public. “The FBI here is working with our partners for one reason. We want to make sure our streets are safe from violent offenders, from the substances that plague or society. The things that keep us awake at night,” FBI Special Agent Raul Bujanda said. Details are limited at this time, no other information on the operation is available. The FBI says information about warrants and related charges will be unsealed at a later date.
