FBI Involved in Investigation of Andrade Auto Exchange

KSCB News - March 23, 2010 12:00 am

Numerous law enforcement vehicles were observed outside Andrade Auto Exchange in Liberal Tuesday afternoon. The KSCB news department contacted the Kansas Bureau of Investigation requesting information about this activity.

KBI Spokesperson Bridgette Patton released a statement stating the agency was executing a search warrant in furtherance of an ongoing matter.

The Southwest Times Newspaper reported Wednesday morning that both locations of Andrade’s Auto Exchange have been shut down by the FBI, KBI, and Liberal Police Department. According to The Times at least one employee has been placed into custody, witnesses say.

Owner Mike Andrade told The Times by telephone from Olathe that he has no idea why the FBI would be at his business.

KSCB News will update with further information when it becomes available.
