CLARKSDALE, Miss. (FOX13) -

FBI agents raided the Revelation Hospice and Palliative Care Center in Clarksdale, Miss., Thursday afternoon.

The Clarksdale Press Register reports that a warrant that was served had to do with Medicaid or Medicare fraud.

A spokesman with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Inspector General's Office says they are involved in the raid. It's a multi-agency operation by state and federal authorities.

The Inspector General's Office handles waste and fraud investigations.

The hospice center is owned by Tunica County attorney Ellis Pittman.

The FBI said this is an ongoing investigation.
