LAKE STATION, Ind. Several federal agents have served a search warrant at the city hall of the northwestern Indiana city of Lake Station.

Three agents from the Internal Revenue Services and one from the FBI were among the agents who served the warrant Friday at the Lake Station City Hall.

Mayor Keith Soderquist tells The Times of Munster city officials complied with agents' requests for documents and information they were seeking.

IRS spokeswoman Kerry Hannigan says agents from her office were in Lake Station on "official business." She and other federal officials declined to comment further.

A state audit of Lake Station's finances last year discovered that nearly $16,000 in city bond collections were missing. State Board of Accounts audit office supervisor Charles Pride says that audit also found financial errors.
