Agents with the United States Postal Service and the Internal Revenue Service this morning conducted an investigation at the home of a Lawrence couple who have battled local police over suspicions about their store.
Lawrence Police said the federal agents were at the home of Guy and Carrie Neighbors - owners of Yellow House Store - in the 1100 block of Andover St., just before 9 a.m. today.
Federal prosecutors had been seeking new evidence against the couple and their variety store after a judge dismissed a charge in May accusing them of possessing guns while being unlawful users of a controlled substance.
At the time, Guy Neighbors told the Journal-World that he was told to expect a "superseding" indictment in the next 30 to 60 days, alleging that he and his wife had conducted a fencing operation while in possession of drugs and guns.
The Neighbors were not available for immediate comment.
