Mineral Wells Area News was traveling northbound on NW 4th Ave around 6:15am this morning when heavy Federal law enforcement was detected along the road between the 3rd and 4th Street.

Agents on the scene were not able to give any details and referred MWAN to their Dallas field office.

MWAN reached out to the Mineral Wells Police Department and they were unaware of the incident.

MWPD Public Information Officer Darby Thomas followed up and stated, “The FBI issued a warrant for a white collar crime. There was no threat to the public.”

Thomas indicated he has assigned an officer to meet with someone in charge of the situation to get more details. Thomas says they are usually notified of these events but there were “several moving parts involved and it was inadvertently missed.”

The PIO for the Dallas FBI office could confirm very little details other than they were indeed in Mineral Wells and will offer more public information to MWAN in a few days.
