NEW BRAUNFELS, Texas (AP) — Dozens of law officers have raided the South Texas headquarters of The Scooter Score in an alleged fraud investigation.

Authorities were seen Wednesday carrying out a search warrant at the New Braunfels headquarters of the company that supplies power wheelchairs and scooters. Company officials didn’t immediately return messages for comment Thursday.

Timothy Menke with the Office of the Inspector General says the investigation involves his agency, plus the Department of Justice, the FBI and the Texas attorney general’s Medicaid fraud unit. An FBI spokesman declined comment on the nature of the investigation.

The Scooter Store earlier this month cut 150 jobs and blamed pending government changes in claims processing and reimbursement. The company last September laid off about 220 workers and again cited a drop in Medicare reimbursements.
