FBI Targets Hancock Co. Probate Court

FBI agents searched the Hancock County courthouse and removed records Wednesday.

Witnesses described the search and said records were being removed from the county's probate court. Agents entered wearing gloves and backpacks, and carrying their own tables and chairs. They also removed large boxes about five feet long, witnesses said.

Between 20 and 30 agents arrived before 8:30 a.m. when the court opened.

The GBI and the Hancock County Sheriff's Department said they had no information on the case.
