As I walked onto the grounds of the gas station with my camera I was immediately approached by a Secret Service agent who very politely told me to stay off the property, which I promptly did, of course. I mean, who's going to tangle with U.S. Secret Service? Certainly not I.
According to mlive, officers were seen taking boxes out of the gas station which were then being searched. When I arrived at the scene several official vehicles were blocking each of the entrances in to the Citgo parking lot.
Several of the residents who live on the street just behind the station were out in front of their homes talking about the situation and speculating as to what was happening half a block away.
Late breaking information is just being reported by Local 4 News Detroit that search warrants are being executed at eight gas stations in Southeast Michigan.
Stay tuned for updates.
