PHOENIX - The Attorney General's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided a Phoenix biomedical business Tuesday as part of a joint investigation.
FBI spokesman Manuel Johnson confirmed the agencies were serving a search warrant at the Biological Resource Center near 24th Street and University Drive Tuesday morning.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the Arizona Attorney General's Office said, "The AGs office and FBI are working together on a joint investigation that will continue over the next few weeks. Due to the nature of the business in question, the site is secure and bio hazard precautions are being made as an extra safety measure for the investigators."
The statement also said that the public is not in any danger and that no further comment would be made Tuesday.
Several officers wearing hazardous material suits were seen throughout the day entering and exiting the business.
According to the
business' website, the location is a donation program and tissue bank. The website states that the donation center serves the Arizona community "exclusively."
Air15 also showed officials at a home near 54th Street and Cactus that could be connected to the investigation.
