The FBI in Detroit executed search warrants at the offices of three area automotive suppliers Tuesday night, The Detroit News reported Wednesday.

The warrants were executed at the offices of Yazaki North America in Canton Township, Denso International in Southfield and Tokai Rika in Plymouth Township, said Special Agent Sandra Berchtold.

A spokeswoman for Denso, a supplier part-owned by Toyota Motor Corp., said the FBI had come to the offices Tuesday in connection with an antitrust investigation. Bridgette LaRose Gollinger, senior public relations specialist at Denso, said the investigation was not related to Toyota's recall issues, the object of congressional hearings this week.

She declined further comment.

Berchtold said the affidavits used to get the search warrants are sealed and she would not disclose the nature of the investigation.
