BATON ROUGE - Federal and state authorities seized merchandise and arrested several people at a Baton Rouge flea market this morning.

Agents with Homeland Security, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement and the EBR Parish Sheriff's Office were seen taking boxes of purses, wallets and other items from the Number One Outlet Mall and Flea Market on Florida Blvd.

A spokesperson with ICE confirmed they are involved in a local law enforcement investigation at the business, but would not give any more details because it was an open investigation.

A News 2 crew on the scene says there is no word if authorities have made any arrests during this raid.
