Federal Agents in Meridian

Federal agents are conducting some sort of operation in Meridian and Lauderdale County.

Investigators have visited the New Place Corner Bar, Bill Gordon's Barber Shop, the Log Cabin Bar on 5th Street, the Sidetrack Lounge in Whynot, and a store on Highway 11 and 80 in Russell. These are properties belonging to businessman Bill Gordon.

Local authorities will only say that the FBI and IRS are conducting an investigation.

We have attempted to contact the US Attorney's Office in Jackson, but no one was available to take our call.
