FBI Raids Offices Of Private Texas College

EL PASO (August 27, 2014) FBI agents raided the offices of a shuttered private college and the house of its owners Wednesday as part of an investigation that includes the U.S. Department of Education.

Three search warrants were served Wednesday, but no arrests were made, FBI spokesman Michael Martinez said.

He declined to elaborate.

One campus of Anamarc College and the owners' house are in El Paso and a second campus is in Santa Teresa, N.M.

Anamarc was a private college with an enrollment of more than 1,200 that offered programs in medical-related fields.

It was co-owned by CEO Ana Maria Piña Houde and her husband, Marc Houde, the chief financial officer.

The school closed in July, before the semester's end, because of financial difficulties.
