The FBI's Norfolk Field Office confirms a federal law enforcement operation was underway in Newport News on October 20.



The investigation took place at Roanoke Avenue and 39th Street.


It appeared to be centered on an auto body repair shop.


During the investigation, a heavy law enforcement presence was in the area. Several men were seen handcuffed and law enforcement officials were seen taking bags of money from the business.
