(CNN) -- FBI agents searched a Southern Christian Leadership Conference office in Dayton, Ohio, on Thursday, an agency spokesman told CNN.
The search came days after the SCLC board accused its national chairman, Dayton minister Raleigh Trammell, of financial mismanagement, according to CNN affiliate WDTN-TV of Dayton.
Trammell has denied the charges.
"The FBI executed sealed federal search warrants in Dayton today," said Michael Brooks, a spokesman for the FBI in Cincinnati. "One is at the SCLC."
Brooks declined to provide additional information, noting the case is currently sealed.
The Southern Christian Leadership Conference is one of the country's most prominent civil rights organizations.
