GARY, Ind. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Federal and state agents swept through Calumet Township Trustee Mary Elgin's office Thursday morning as they executed a search warrant, the Post-Tribune is reporting.

FBI Supervisory Special Agent Robert Ramsey said Indiana State Police investigators and agents from the IRS and FBI were at 610 Connecticut St. in Gary as part of an ongoing investigation.

He declined to say more about the nature of the case or when the investigation began. The warrant is sealed in U.S. District Court in Hammond, he said.

Township employees could stay at their desks or take their personal belongings and leave, Ramsey said. No one was detained.

Elgin, in her third term in office, could not be reached immediately for comment.
