Defense Department criminal investigators raided the U.S. headquarters of Siemens Medical Solutions in Malvern, Pa., a western suburb of Philadelphia.
The only thing I can tell you is that agents from our office were executing a search warrant, said Ed Bradley, special agent in charge at the Defense Criminal Investigative Services Northeast field office in Lester, Pa. At deadline, Siemens officials had not responded to requests for comment.
Bradley declined to say how many agents were at the Siemens site, the nature of the investigation or whether other federal agencies were involved.
The DCIS is the criminal investigative arm of the Office of the Inspector General for the Defense Department. Bradley said the service has about 300 agents who have full federal police powers.
Siemens is a major provider of imaging equipment and information technology and data storage services for the healthcare industry.
The company in recent weeks received a Defense Department contract worth up to $267 million to sell medical-imaging equipment to the military.
