On Thursday morning around 9 a.m., troopers and special agents from the FBI searched the home of Michael Gramegna on Shoddy Mill Road.

According to state police, the search warrant was granted after Gramegna was arrested for violation of a protective order on Feb. 5.

Police said as a condition of his release following that arrest, Gramegna was required to surrender all 21 of the firearms registered to him. As of Feb. 20, he had not.

As of Thursday afternoon, troopers and special agents are searching Gramegna’s 30-acre property for the aforementioned firearms. They have deployed firearm detection K-9s, bomb technicians and tactical personnel from both units.

Gramegna placed bond weeks ago. Officials are actively looking for him at this time.

There is no known threat to the public at this time.

Shoddy Mill Rd has been closed and vehicle traffic is being detoured around the scene.
