FBI raids company connected to son of Bogalusa mayor

Updated:

BOGALUSA, LA - Bogalusa Mayor Charles Mizell has confirmed that FBI agents raided the office of a company connected to him Friday.

Agents took records from Chamico, a commercial and industrial general contractor which is now owned by the mayor's son. The mayor previously was an owner and made money from the company as recently as 2011, according to his ethics filings.

Mizell told FOX 8 by email that while he no longer owns the business, he does own the property.

Mizell said he went to the office during the raid to try and talk to the FBI agents, but they refused to tell him anything.
