CHARLOTTE—The FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration spent much of Friday investigating a home on Robinhood Road in southeast Charlotte.
The agencies have not released many details surrounding the investigation. However, a man was seen being lead away from the scene in handcuffs around 1 p.m. Several items were removed from a house, and authorities called in a hazardous response team to clean up the scene.
The man was in handcuffs, placed in a dark SUV with dark tinted windows and driven away. A real estate search shows the owners of the home are Abdi Ebrahim Shiraz and Patti Shiraz.
A person with the same last name of the homeowners appeared in federal court Friday afternoon. However, the criminal complaint against Shiraz was sealed by the federal government. Yet the judge said the summary of the complaint says the man attempted to distribute Class One chemicals and he did not have proper documentation for them.
Prosecutors say the suspect could serve a maximum of four years, with a fine of $250,000. The man is being held without bond and told the judge through his attorney, that he is employed but probably going to be fired after this arrest.
As for the neighborhood, some are concerned others just curious as to what occurred.
