UPDATE: Indian Trail Home Raided by Feds

UPDATE: We have learned that the motive for Thursday's search was related to a money-laundering / fraud scheme involving counterfeit airbags. Agents seized more than 1,600 counterfeit airbags, which authorities say there is a huge illegal market for.

Included in the swarm of agents were agents with Homeland Security. The raid is the culmination of an investigation across Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina.

Igor Borodin, 26, was apprehended by Homeland Security. Reports say Borodin kept a secret room which contained fake car parts. He had just lived in the home 2 - 3 months.
