FBI questions Lisbon man

LISBON – Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation were in Lisbon early Wednesday, but only to work on an ongoing investigation, according to Police Chief Mike Abraham.

Abraham said he was notified by the FBI of its intentions to come talk to someone about two days before they arrived. The bureau requested some local assistance, including a location where it could conduct an interview of someone.

The agents reportedly went to an apartment near North Market Street at about 6:30 a.m. Wednesday found the man they wanted to speak to and conducted a lengthy interview with him at the Lisbon Police station.

Abraham said it was not an investigation his department was involved in conducting or any matter for which they have requested FBI assistance.

His department was only there to provide assistance and no arrest followed the interview. The man was returned home by the agents later in the day.

Abraham was unable or declined to provide any specifics about the investigation.
