HASTINGS (WKZO) -- FBI Agents surprised everyone when they arrived at the Barry County Sheriffs Department yesterday with warrants to search the place. They spent most of yesterday going through their offices, searching for something. 

They reportedly seized computers and went through paperwork and files, but they aren’t saying what they were looking for. 

TV-3 reports that the issue may involve the death of undercover officer Chris Yonkers, who was off-duty when he was killed by a drunk driver in 2008.

It’s alleged that a department official may have signed paperwork claiming Yonkers was on-duty so his family could receive compensation.

Justice officials are refusing to confirm that an investigation is even underway.
