Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms searched a home in Roland Thursday morning, seizing evidence related to an ongoing federal firearms investigation, a spokesman for the agency said.


John Ham, an ATF spokesman based in Kansas City, Mo., said the Roland location was one of six searched around the state as part of the investigation. The other searches were conducted in Indianola, Elk Run Heights and Macksburg, with two more being conducted in Evansdale.


Ham declined to say what evidence was taken from the home on Martha Street in Roland, a town of about 1,200 people in northeastern Story County.


No arrests were made Thursday, Ham said.


Ham declined to elaborate on the nature of the firearms violations being investigated, but said there was no risk to the public.


Ham said all documents related to the investigation remained sealed by the court Thursday, and that more information could become available maybe as early as next week.


Story County Sheriff’s Capt. Nick Lennie said his office assisted in the ATF operation in Roland, but referred other questions to the ATF.
