The FBI is investigating a northwest Iowa business. The agency is not releasing many details at this point, but FBI spokesperson Sandy Breault, confirms agents searched Sioux Automation Center, Incorporated late Monday afternoon.
An employee with the company says they were asked to leave the facility around four. He says some employees were then questioned by authorities.
According to the company's website, they offer replacement parts for all farm equipment.
A statement released by the company's president Ronald Hulshof says, "this appears to be a bizarre over-reaction to a civil issue. We've been working with the Department of Labor for eight months, cooperating fully."
We sat down with Hulshof Tuesday afternoon.
We'll hear from him, coming up on News Four at Six.
