BRENTWOOD — Several FBI agents and other law enforcement officers converged on a property on Crawley Falls Road Wednesday afternoon as part of an ongoing federal probe.
According to Kristen Setera, a spokeswoman with the FBI’s Boston office, the FBI performed a search at 149 Crawley Falls Road in connection with a federal investigation.
Setera declined to comment further on the nature of the case.
Setera said the FBI also conducted a search at a property at 71 Main St. in nearby East Kingston, but she wouldn’t confirm whether it was connected to the Brentwood case.
East Kingston Police Chief Tim Connell referred all questions to the FBI.
Several FBI agents were seen searching inside a garage on the Crawley Falls Road property late Wednesday afternoon.
At one point authorities closed part of the road for safety precautions, but it has since reopened.
Brentwood police were at the scene as well, but said the FBI was handling all information related to the case.
Police said there was no threat to the public.
Agents with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms were also seen assisting at the scene.
Records show the Brentwood property is owned by Daniel Musso Sr.
Musso made headlines in 2013 when he was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and assault after a confrontation and scuffle with police outside the state Capitol.
He was one of several gun advocates who attended the rally organized by the Mayors Against Illegal Guns campaign
Musso confronted one of the speakers, which led to an incident with police in which he was subdued with a stun gun.
That was part of a bad week for Musso. The arrest happened on a Tuesday. Four days later, on Saturday, a chimney fire caused $150,000 in damage to the house at 149 Crawley Falls Road.
Deputy Chief Gary Raymond of the Brentwood Fire Department said at the time that Musso was out fishing with his grandsons when heat from a chimney ignited dry wood in the 149 Crawley Falls Road home's frame. Musso uses a combination wood/oil burner to heat water, Raymond said, adding that the cause of the fire was ruled accidental.
