ALTOONA - Members of the IRS and the Department of Treasury were inside Dr. John Johnson's office here along Walnut Avenue in Altoona throughout the morning Wednesday. Witnesses say around 8:00 a.m. they entered the building and told all employees to step back from their computers and put their hands up.
Employees were later released as they raided his office. Witnesses say more than 30 officers were at the building and they raided his other offices in Altoona. Dr. Johnson’s online biography says he is a pain management doctor. In the past he has faced charges dealing with taxes. We spoke to one of his former employees Wednesday. She said she's not surprised by the raid. She believes he has been committing fraud and wants to see him behind bars.
