The FBI has closed a Granite City medical clinic after an “operation” on Thursday, but an agency spokesman says he is unaware of any connection to a Wood River clinic that was also closed yesterday. A receptionist at Riverbend Physical Medicine on Vaughn Road in Wood River stated the office is not affiliated with Physical Medicine Clinic in Granite City, but offered no further comment.
A receptionist at the Riverbend Physical Medicine office on State Street in Jerseyville stated they were open today, but said they would not comment on any activity involving the closure of the office in Wood River either. Multiple attempts to reach the owner of the clinics, James Briggs, have been unsuccessful.
