RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) – The Federal Bureau of Investigation, along with Raleigh Police and other law enforcement agencies, raided two homes in southeast Raleigh Tuesday morning.

A resident in the neighborhood told CBS 17 that they were woken over a loudspeaker around 6 a.m. by someone claiming they were with the FBI and urging a neighbor to leave their house.

The witness said there were approximately 20 police vehicles and 30 to 35 armed SWAT officers in front of two houses — 2424 and 2500 Evers Drive.

The witness said the primary focus of the search was the home at 2424 Evers Drive, which was operated as an auto repair shop.

CBS 17 contacted the FBI for information about the raids and was told by a spokesperson that “the FBI is conducting court-approved activities on behalf of the United States Attorney’s Office.”

Pressing for more information, the spokesman said the raids were on sealed federal documents and there was no other information they could reveal.

Raleigh Police confirmed their involvement in the raids but said they were not briefed by the FBI on the details of the case.

The FBI told CBS 17 that no one was arrested while the search warrants were being executed, but the witness said he saw one person being taken away in handcuffs.

Authorities closed the entire street during the raids.

Several vehicles were towed from the home at 2424 Evers Drive, the witness said.

CBS 17 has contacted authorities for more information.
