FBI declines comment tying to local search

By Becky Barnes

Information about last week’s raid on the Farmer’s Tobacco Company is being held close to the vest by federal officials.

Debra Madden, FBI media representative in Jackson, Miss., declined to tie the Kentucky search warrant to a recent seizure of $20 million in contraband cigarettes in Mississippi. However, she did confirm that a search warrant had also been executed in Mississippi.

According to The Clarion-Ledger in Jackson, the Mississippi warehouse contained approximately one million cartons of discount brand cigarettes from the U.S. and other countries.
