Old Saybrook - Federal, state and local agencies raided an Old Saybrook doctor's office Tuesday.

The authorities executed a search-and-seizure warrant at Premier Medical Associates at 929 Boston Post Road. Law enforcement officers, who were on the scene most of the day Tuesday, said it was the office of Dr. Scott W. Houghton.

Officers were carrying boxes of paper out of the office, which is on the second and third floors of the complex. No arrests were made, police said.

Agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration, federal Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, state Drug Control Division, state Department of Public Health and town police were on scene.

He was an intern at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and a resident at Greenwich Hospital.

He has no malpractice information reported and there has been no disciplinary action reported in the last 10 years, according to state records.
