WESTFIELD, Ind. – The FBI is conducting a raid at Banc-serv Partners, LLC in Westfield. According to their website, it is a finance company located at 777 E Main Street.

A spokesperson with the FBI confirms there is “investigative activity in the area related to an ongoing investigation.”

Our cameras were rolling as agents walked in and out of the financial company front doors, searching for information related to an ongoing investigation.

People who work at nearby businesses are curious what the FBI is looking for.

“We started looking in the windows and noticed that there were people going through files,” said a witness.

Agents were also carrying plastic cases to and from an FBI van. Upstairs, officials wearing blue latex gloves searched through files inside of Banc-serv offices.

We tried to speak with employees of the company who were standing outside, they would not comment on the investigation.

“Usually the whole entire parking lot is full. So…the fact that it is half empty right now means people must have left,” said a nearby worker.

According to the Banc-serv website, the business deals with the smell business lending process including credit analysis, auditing, and special assets management. The group provides over 350 lending institutions with with outsource solutions for the entire U.S. small business administration lending process.

“It is probably a white collar crime. So it does not concern me as much for my safety or anything like that,” said a woman who works nearby.

The FBI has not yet released details surrounding the investigation.
