Homeland security investigation at Rincon home


The U.S. Attorney's Office says Federal agents arrested a man Tuesday morning as part of an investigation involving the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Federal agents made the arrest at the home in Madison Oaks in Rincon Tuesday morning.

Officials would not say why they made the arrest or what the man is charged with.

Neighbors say nearly a dozen agents busted into the home and left with a man in handcuffs. The neighbors say the agents also took several computers.

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office says they assisted with the Federal search warrant, but could not provide more information because it is a Federal matter.

Authorities say they'll be able to release more information Wednesday when the suspect makes his first court appearance.
