Federal investigators raided a horse rescue operation in Berks County on Tuesday.
The FBI, acting on a federal search warrant, conducted the raid at Another Chance 4 Horses on Station Road in North Heidelberg Township.
Agents seized computers, cell phones, financial records, veterinary records and boxes of other items and documents related to the nonprofit operation and its sale and purchase of horses, according to an inventory list compiled by the agents.
Federal investigators are looking for evidence of crimes, including conspiracy and wire fraud, according to the search warrant, which was issued by U.S. District Court Judge Henry Perkin in Allentown on Monday.
Nobody was taken into custody.
Officials on the scene declined to comment on the case.
In an interview with 69 News, the operation's owner, Christy Sheidy, said the raid has to do with the health certification of the horses she's caring for.
She said she's innocent of any wrongdoing.
