The FBI raided the Philadelphia Sheriff's office Thursday and seized some of the office's computers, a source said.

An FBI spokeswoman confirmed that it was at the office "performing normal law enforcement activities" but declined to offer specifics. She said details would not come unless charges are filed.

A sheriff's office employee posted the following message on his Facebook account Thursday:

"So I'm at the office and in comes the FBI. They locked the doors unplugged my computer and separated everyone. I was able to take my cell phone with me and I'm currently being quarantined for what reason I do not know."

Just think of all the porn sites visited from those computers and all the naked cell phone pictures, I wonder what they are investigating? I'm not accusing the Philadelphia Sheriff's Office of anything... I just know cops.

Hey IMA your a knuckle head. It sounds to me that you don't know any "cops". I think you are mothing more then a computer tough guy or girl. You know, the person that likes to hide behind things and run their mouth until the "cops" show up, and then you kiss their their ass; yes sir officer, no sir officer! I love dealing with people like you!
