The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is conducting an investigation at Dippin Donuts, according to police.
Several people reported to NEWSChannel 2 that police were on scene at the two Dippin Donuts locations in Rome, on Erie Boulevard and Black River Boulevard, as well as the New Hartford location on Seneca Turnpike.
Rome police say the IRS alerted them that they are conducting an investigation at the two Rome locations, and New York State Police confirmed that the IRS was executing search warrants at all three locations.
When NEWSChannel 2 crews arrived at the Dippin Donuts in New Hartford, a locksmith was parked outside of the building, and a sign on the door said "Business temporarily closed."
State police said the U.S. Attorney's Office is the lead on this investigation, but a spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney's Office said that their policy doesn't allow them to confirm or deny any investigations.
Phone calls to Dippin Donuts were unanswered on Thursday, and the owner declined an interview at the scene.
