SILVERTHORNE, Colo. (AP) — Police and federal agents raided a Colorado dental office in Silverthorne while investigating potential prescription drug fraud.

Silverthorne police tell the Summit Daily News that the person of interest in the investigation at Comfort Dental was a visiting dentist from the Denver area and not the principal dentists and orthodontists who work there.

Police Chief John Minor said his staff would be working with the Drug Enforcement Administration to review documents taken from the office last Friday. Minor says investigators "strongly believe" there is a prescription fraud case.

Officers did not give any other details about the alleged fraud.
