WILSON — FBI agents searched a Wilson residence Thursday morning, but the reason for the raid remains hush-hush.

Special Agent Rickey Rains, FBI media representative, would only verify agents were on the scene.

"We were there. It's part of an ongoing investigation," he said, adding the agency had no further comment on the nature of the probe.

Rains did confirm no arrests were made as a result of the early morning search.

Carter County Sheriff's Department assisted agents at the scene. Wilson police were involved in a separate investigation at the time, but were aware federal agents were conducting an active inquiry within the city limits.
