A corruption investigation prompted the FBI and local authorities to raid Palm Springs City Hall, Calif., and visited the mayor’s home on Tuesday, the Associated Press reports. 

The agents shut down city hall, and a Palm Springs attorney said employees cooperating with agents.

The FBI also went to the home of Mayor Steve Pougnet but there was no answer at the door.

“I am happy to cooperate with the inquiry going on at City Hall, just as I have always been fully cooperative and open in all of my many years as an elected official in Palm Springs,” the mayor said in a statement. “I have complete confidence that our City Council, city manager, city attorney and city staff will do everything they can to cooperate by ensuring that this process will be as swift and as thorough as possible.”

The FBI declined to comment on the investigation.
