One of the largest collections of photos from newspapers nationwide is the target of an FBI investigation in North Little Rock, Arkansas, UALR Public Radio reports.

FBI agents were seen removing boxes from Roger Photo Archive, known for digitizing photos from newspapers.

“I saw a number of FBI agents milling around,” said Arkansas Business reporter Mark Friedman.  “I could see a lot of the agents had the tee shirts that said ‘Evidence Response Team,’ and it looked like they were looking for something.”

The FBI declined to discuss the investigation.

The attorney for the owner of the photo archives said his client has not been informed of being under investigation.
