FBI Raids Several Offices of Houston-Based Engineering Firm and Laredo Government

Houston Chronicle reports, “A four-city FBI sweep targeted a Houston-based engineering company and a slew of local government offices in Laredo with daylong raids in an investigation still shrouded in mystery.” An attorney for Dannenbaum Engineering said the company had no idea what sparked the searches, and the newspaper adds that no arrests were made. It quotes an FBI spokesperson as saying, “Once we’re completed, I expect the business will go on as normal.” The Chronicle calls Dannenbaum “one of the most prolific engineering companies in Houston” and adds that Dannenbaum does extensive work with local government units, including the Harris County Toll Road Authority.
