A local business was raided by the Secret Service in downtown Mansfield for their alleged involvement in an online fraud investigation.

A search warrant was issued on Wednesday at Abon Cards and Coin store, located at 115 Park Avenue West, by the Secret Service with assistance from the FBI, IRS and Mansfield police. The business may be involved in a multi- jurisdictional wire fraud investigation that involves internet sales of stolen merchandise.

Abon buys everything from coins and jewlery to toys and electronics, conducting nearly 80% of their business online, selling items to all 50 U.S. states and internationally.

A Mansfield police officer told WMFD that Abon is a hot spot for criminals to sell stolen items. By standers said a number of items were confiscated from the store by law enforcement during the raid on Wednesday.

Larry and Donna Bence are the co-owners of Abon Cards and Coin store, having been in business together since 1969.

No arrests have been made as of yet.
