TOMPKINSVILLE — Law enforcement personnel conducted a search and seizure of files and records at a Tompkinsville doctor's office Wednesday.

Tompkinsville Police Chief Dale Ford said an investigation had been ongoing for more than two years into Dr. Clella Hayes' practice procedures.

Along with Ford's agency, Kentucky State Police Drug Enforcement/Special Investigations West and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents were involved with the search and seizure of records.

“The investigation is continuing and more information will be available in the future,” Ford said. “This is in the early stages of the legal process and I really can't say more.”

Ford did say the search was conducted at an office on North Main Street.

Hayes is listed online as a family practice physician. Attempts to reach her at the phone number found online were unsuccessful.
