DHS offices "locked down" briefly on Wednesday
Marie Gill, left, and "Anon Repo" were doing a news interview outside the Hancock Co. DHS facility on Wednesday when the cops were called.
The Hancock County office of the Department of Human Services was apparently locked down Wednesday after a man claiming to be a member of the group "Anonymous" was spotted doing a news interview outside.
Anonymous is a loosely knit group of members that has made international headlines in the past few years for hacking numerous governmental and business websites.
Members call themselves "Anons" but it is difficult to determine who is actually a member or not a member because the group prides itself on secrecy.
In the past few months, Anonymous has taken an interest in Child Protection Services (CPS) across the United States.

St. Clare Fest serves up seafood, live music, carnival rides & more
St. Clare Seafood Festival organizers are anticipating the biggest event in the church's history this Memorial Day weekend with three days of great food, carnival rides and one of the biggest entertainment line-up in the fest’s history.
"This is as big, if not bigger, than last year’s event," one of St. Clare Fest's organizers said. "We're looking for huge crowds. We’re supposed to have beautiful weather again this year.”
St. Clare hosted an annual festival for nearly 40 years before Hurricane Katrina destroyed the historic water-side church in Waveland.
Once the new church was built, however, organizers added "seafood" to the mix and never looked back. The event has grown every year for the past three years, and parishioners say they're looking to at least double last year's turn-out.
