Citadel Gun and Safe

Federal agents raided a gun store near the Las Vegas Strip on Friday afternoon but released few details, saying only it was part of an ongoing investigation.

The raid, which included agents from the FBI and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, was conducted at Citadel Gun and Safe, 4305 Dean Martin Drive, near Flamingo Road. Metro Police assisted in the operation.

It’s not clear why agents were at the store. A spokesman at Nellis Air Force Base said the Office of Special Investigations “at this point is not commenting because it’s part of an ongoing investigation.”

Joe Gold, CEO of the nearby Bahama Mamas cigar store, said agents showed up to the building in the early afternoon and stayed for several hours.
