Investigators searched a medical office in Youngstown on Wednesday morning. 


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Agents from the US Department of Health, FBI and Ohio Attorney General’s Office executed a search warrant at a Youngstown medical office Wednesday as part of a medicaid fraud investigation.

They were at an office at Building 602 of the Parmalee Medical Complex in Youngstown. It’s home to three different medical practices.

A spokesperson for the Ohio Attorney General’s Office said its Medicaid Fraud Control Unit was assisting in the search led by the Office of Inspector General’s Department of Health and Human Services.

A spokesperson for the Office of Inspector General confirmed that a search warrant was executed but would provide no other information, saying only that it was part of an ongoing case.

Investigators carried boxes out of the building late Wednesday morning, then immediately left.

No one has been arrested.
