PURCELLVILLE, Va. - The FBI raided the headquarters of the Virginia Regional Transit on Friday.
The building sits in a quiet office park, so everyone in the area had questions about all of the police activity.
“When I got to work this morning, I see the police cars surrounded Virginia [Regional] Transit. Just lights flashing and all of the entrances closed,” said Terry Martin, the owner of Terry’s Body Shop located next door.
The FBI would only say that the raid of this bus service is not a public safety issue.
The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office kept the perimeter secure all day while the FBI worked inside.
The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is also located in this building, but police turned people away telling them the DMV was closed for the day.
We tried to see the activity inside, but the FBI closed the blinds.
Later in the afternoon, some of the FBI agents left. We tried to ask them about the raid, but they referred us to their press office.
The Virginia Regional Transit is a non-profit that is funded by government grants to provide affordable bus service around the state.
We attempted to contact Virginia Regional Transit CEO Mark McGregor, but he had no comment.
A spokesperson for the FBI said they are not going to give us information about what this raid is all about at this time. When we asked when they would release information to the public, they told us it could come possibly as soon as next week.
