Federal Agents on “Official Business” in Gulfport
Federal law enforcement officers were carrying boxes out of a Gulfport business this morning.
Federal agents were standing outside Stacey’s Unique Tax Services, a business in a plaza off of Pass Road in Gulfport. The federal law enforcement officers appeared to be carrying out boxes. When News 25 approached the officers, they told us they were with the IRS on “official business.”
Monica Benjamin, the owner of a Christian bookstore two doors down, was concerned when she saw all the police outside the building. “I came to work this morning and our parking lot was full of cars. I had no clue what was going on because there were no flashing lights or anything. When I pulled up I was able to see officers.”
The South Mississippi IRS has yet to comment on the situation. When more information is available, we will update you.
