A spokesman for the FBI's Cleveland division said he could not discuss what prompted the raids, because the federal search warrants were sealed. FBI agent Scott Wilson said he did not know if anyone was detained as a result of the searches.
Besides the Findlay restaurant, searches were conducted at five IHOP locations in the Toledo area, one location in Lima, and one in Evansville, Ind.
All the locations are owned by the same company, an IHOP spokesman said. They were all raided about the same time. Search warrants were issued at 6 a.m., Homeland Security reported.
