FBI conducts "court-authorized activity" at CCS Oncology Locations

Posted at 9:04 AM, Mar 27, 2018

The FBI is conducting what the bureau calls "court-authorized activity" at multiple CCS Oncology locations in Western New York.  The information was confirmed to 7 Eyewitness Newsroom through an FBI spokesperson.

An attorney for CCS Oncology explains the FBI conducted a search warrant, though it was unclear what exactly the government was seeking.

A 7 Eyewitness News photographer saw FBI personnel at the company's location on Frankhauser Road in Amherst.

According to the Western New York District of the U.S. Attorney's Office, the "government is taking steps to secure information in an ongoing investigation. The government's actions will result in the copying of certain information in the custody of CCS Oncology." 

This protection of information comes after a court granted Bank of America's request to seize CCS Oncology assets, after the company failed to make payments on more than $16.2 million on four separate credit lines. 

Attorney Robert Trusiak said, "critical care was disrupted today over what amounts over what amounts to a billing dispute." Trusiak said CCS Oncology would be open to cancer patients, Wednesday.

The U.S. Attorney's Office is distributing a letter to all CCS Oncology patients. A copy of that letter is below:
