Posted: Updated:

In Salem Wednesday, The Rod Shop found itself at the center of a federal investigation.

Local and state police have not released details on the nature of the investigation, citing the fact it is a federal operation. The owner of The Rod Shop says agents took a computer from his business, that the raid is part of a grand jury investigation, and that no arrests have been made.

Folks that live in the neighborhood behind the shop say they are shocked by the news. Many saying this is a quiet neighborhood.

"Sure would like to know what is going on, and if it is something that is not good for the neighborhood we would like to know so we feel like we are safe and know what is going on," says Nancy Wilson.

The raid forced the dealership to close Wednesday. It will re-open on Thursday.
