S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) agents executed search warrants against the town of South Congaree, S.C. this week, sources familiar with the raid tell FITS.
It’s not immediately clear what information SLED was seeking from the town, but it offices were served with the warrants on Wednesday.
Several sources say federal agents also participated in the raid – which took place on the same day as a joint SLED/FBI raid on the home of a video “sweepstakes” operator.
A representative of the town did not immediately respond to our request for comment, while sources at SLED confirmed an ongoing investigation involving the town but declined to discuss details.
Incorporated in 1957, South Congaree has a population of just over 2,000. It’s located just south of the Columbia, S.C. metropolitan airport.
UPDATE: Law enforcement sources are now confirming to FITS that the raid has a connection to the state’s notorious “Lexington Ring.” For our latest story, click here.
