(MARTINSVILLE) - The FBI and Bloomington Police are conducting a raid of Martinsville home connected to a man suspected of flashing himself to numerous women. Sources at the scene and Bloomington Police confirm the search is connected to the disappearance of an Indiana University student Lauren Spierer.

The FBI and other police agencies converged on the home in the 2900 block of Old Morgantown Rd., Thursday morning. Investigators are on the scene with cadaver dogs and have been digging and shifting dirt near a barn. A white pick-up was towed from the scene Thursday morning.

FBI officials are not commenting on why they are there. Bloomington Police confirmed they are there related to the Lauren Spierer investigation.

According to police records, last August, 35-year-old Justin Wagers was arrested for exposing his genitals to a woman at a Circle K gas station near Bluff Road and County line Road in Johnson County. He was charged with indecent exposure after the woman identified Wagers from his photo on the state sex offender registry.

Police alleged Wagers is a possible suspect in another flashing incident in Morgan County. He has been in the Johnson County Jail since August as similar instance were investigated.

While Wagers reportedly lives at the address on Old Morgantown Road up until his arrest, property records show the home is owned by Danny and Lisa Walker of Martinsville. Wager is Lisa Walker's son.
