UNION, MO (KPLR)-An FBI raid in Union, Missouri has left residents and workers with many questions. In the normally quiet downtown, FBI agents spent the day Friday going in and out of the Franklin County Professional Building on Springfield Avenue. According to people who work in the building, the agents arrived about 10:30am and notified employees on the first floor that they were going to be doing something on the third floor and not to worry.
Neither the FBI nor Union police are commenting about the investigation. Sources say the agents have been searching the offices of Stuart B. Millner and Associates, an appraisal, auction and liquidation business. Agents were seen looking over a red Lexus parked in a parking lot across the street from the building. They were also seen carrying a computer tower out of the building.
A source says that Stuart B. Millner and Associates does not keep auction items in this building. That the location just has office headquarters. The company website says it has recovered more than $1 billion for its clients in liquidating and auctioning assets from manufacturing facilities.
