Luxury auto dealership, homes targeted in multi-agency raid

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Investigators with the FBI, Internal Revenue Service, Drug Enforcement Administration and other federal agencies raided a Grantville-area car dealership and two Del Cerro homes Wednesday and made several arrests as part of an operation of undisclosed nature.

The teams of agents served search warrants Wednesday morning at Autohaus San Diego on Mission Gorge Road and at residences on nearby Madra Avenue and Park Ridge Boulevard.

Several people reportedly were arrested and computers seized at the business.

Property records list the two houses under the names of people who are in automobile-related professions, a local news station reported.

Felicia McCain, a public information officer for the IRS, confirmed that the agency was involved in a "law enforcement operation" but referred further questions to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Debra Hartman, spokeswoman for the latter agency, would not release any details about the case, including the locations of the raids.

"I am sorry, but we have no comment at this time," Hartman said early Wednesday afternoon.

A spokesman for the FBI did not respond to a request for comment.
