CROWN POINT, Ind. — The FBI and Indiana State Police have raided the offices of Lake County Sheriff John Buncich.

Investigators entered the offices of the Lake County Government Center in Crown Point Thursday morning and left later with several boxes of documents.

U.S. Attorney spokesman Ryan Holmes says search warrants were served but declined to comment on the nature of the investigation.

Dean Delisle tells The Northwest Indiana Times he was in an office where police records are kept seeking a copy of an accident report when investigators entered and ordered everybody including employees to leave the building. He says investigators began “taking pictures of everything.”

State and federal investigators’ cars also were parked outside Buncich’s home in Crown Point.

A spokesman for Buncich says his department is cooperating with the FBI.
