The FBI swarmed in on my neighbors house this morning located in Pahoa, Hawaii.
I first noticed something was going on when my dogs were barking loudly and I looked out my window and saw FBI Agents with large guns and bullet proof vests surrounding the house. After the house was secured… they took off most of their clothes stating that they were FBI Agents.
One of the FBI Agents had a “Battering Ram” and I knew that something was about to go down so I grabbed my iPhone and started to take pictures.
I called Hawaii News Now Cameraman Darryl Lee and told him what was going on and that he might want to come check things out.
I asked Sergeant Scott Amaral what the heck was going on and he said he wasn’t able to comment on the matter, however, he assisted me in getting one of the FBI Agents to come out and talk with me for a few minutes.
They were inside the house for nearly two hours talking to the occupants of the house and then they started removing some boxes with what looked like some files in them.
I asked the FBI Agent that was sent out to talk to me about what was going on and he said he was not authorized to speak on the matter and gave me a number to the FBI’s media relations on Oahu. I’ve tried calling the number several times and have left a message asking them to get back to me on the matter.
They were at the house for nearly two and a half hours before they packed up their stuff and left. No arrests were made that I could tell of and only some property removed from the house.
It’s still a mystery to me as to why they were there… but I expect to find out soon enough since I gave an interview to Hawaii News Now.
