A federal investigation involving national security was conducted late Thursday at a home in Dearborn, according to officials.

“FBI personnel are on scene conducting a law enforcement operation,” Tim Wiley, media coordinator of the bureau’s Detroit field office, said Thursday. A WXYZ-TV video showed agents removing boxes Thursday night.

On Friday, FBI officials said the agency is not releasing any new information or updates on the matter.

The investigation was conducted on Jonathon Street, Wiley said. Neighbors identified a home on the 7000 block of the street near Warren Avenue.

“There’s no threat to public safety in the area, so folks don’t need to be concerned about any dangerous situation,” he said.

No further information was available about the target of the investigation. More information was expected to be released Friday.

One person said he was visiting a friend to break the Ramadan fast and found the road blocked. “No one would say anything,” he said when he asked neighbors about the police activity. “It could be God knows what.”

He said he saw plain-clothes officers and more in uniform outside the home.

Officers appeared to have left the scene about 11:45 p.m. Thursday.
