OKLAHOMA CITY – SkyNews9 HD captured video of a federal raid on a storage facility Tuesday evening.

Authorities carried out over 50 boxes from the storage facility near Memorial Road and Santa Fe Avenue. Many of the boxes were labeled "Carnival Cigarettes" and others were labeled "Swisher Sweets Cigarettes."

Authorities have not released any information about the raid, but sources told News 9 the raid is part of an ATF (Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, and Firearms) investigation that had gone on for over one year. 

The investigation involves illegal tobacco products.

Sources also said there are three other locations that agents are focusing on.
