    The FBI raided the Middlebury Volunteer Fire Department on Thursday, May 15, 2014.

    The FBI raided the Middlebury Volunteer Fire Department on Thursday as part of an investigation into reports of mishandled department finances related to fire chief business.

    Middlebury Fire Chief Paul Perrotti said that he is not involved in any wrongdoing and that he cooperated fully with the federal agents, providing all of the information they requested.

    While Perrotti does not know who filed the complaints, he believes it might have been a vengeful former firefighter at the volunteer department.

    The federal agents were at the 65 Tucker Hill Road fire house late Thursday morning as part of the ongoing investigation and left just before noon.

    The FBI declined to comment on the details of the investigation.

    More information will be provided when it becomes available.
