FBI raids eye doctor's office again

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The FBI has raided a Palm Beach County doctor's office.

Agents were seen inside Dr. Salomon Melgen's office in the 2500 block of Metro Centre Blvd Tuesday.

The FBI raided the same office in January. At that time, "The Miami Herald" reported Dr. Melgen had an outstanding IRS lien of $11.1 million for taxes owed from 2006 to 2009.

"The Palm Beach Post" also reported the eye doctor had lost millions of dollars over the years on various investments.

In April Politico.com reported Melgen had given $700,000 to New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez and other Democratic politicians.

It's not clear why the FBI was back at Dr. Melgen's office Tuesday.
