AUSTIN -- Twin Liquors management is responding to Tuesday's raid by federal agents.
Wednesday evening, KVUE News received the following statement:
Twin Liquors is family-owned and operated and has been an active part of the Austin community since the late 1800s. We are the third generation to manage this company, which was built upon honesty and integrity.
Although we haven't been told the reason for this investigation, we are cooperating fully with the agencies involved. We are handling this matter with transparency, respect for the agencies and confidence that this will come to an acceptable resolution.
In the meantime, it is business as usual at all Twin Liquors stores. Thank you to our employees, customers, industry and the community for the outpouring of support.

Employees at the headquarters of Twin Liquors were back in their offices Wednesday. The night before federal agents loaded boxes of evidence on to a U-haul truck.
The IRS, FBI, state comptroller, U.S. Attorney's Office and the TABC are all investigating. None of them would talk about why they were there.
A spokesperson in the U.S. Attorney's Office told KVUE there is no timeframe on when we can expect more information on this raid.
