Federal agents raid Swedenborgian Church on Beacon Hill
Federal agents swooped into a Beacon Hill church today, armed with search warrants.
The investigators, from the FBI and IRS, arrived this morning and remained at the Swedenborgian Church on the Hill through midafternoon. People were not allowed into the church this afternoon, which sits across from the State House. Residents, however, could enter the Bostonview apartment building, which appears to be owned by the church.
Allison Mahan, a spokeswoman for the FBI, said this morning that federal investigators were executing a search warrant at the Bowdoin Street church. She said she did not have details about the search warrant.
Mahan and IRS spokeswoman Jessica Crocker said the investigation was not related to the Boston Marathon bombings.
Representatives of the church could not be immediately reached.
