BONIFAY - A local doctor's office was raided early morning Wednesday.

At about 8 a.m. state personnel descended on and cordoned off the family practice physician office of Dr. Ahmad Tariq Ismail, 110 E. Byrd Ave., where they spent hours collecting what appeared to be paper documents and files, according to witnesses.

State officials from the Attorney General's office at the scene said the raid was related to Medicaid fraud.

Calls to Dr. Ismail's office were unsuccessful Wednesday. A records request into the case was sent to the Attorney General's office.
