After a raid on a lumber business near Richmond, Virginia, an anonymous passerby found the Homeland Security staging documents in the parking lot of a Target store.
On Thursday Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations executed search warrants at the Lumber Liquidator’ s Virginia headquarters in Toano. Another business location for the hardwood-flooring retailer in suburban Richmond was also searched. At the time, a spokesman for the feds declined to say whether the warrant was related to a particular person or for the company as a whole. Lumber Liquidators has 305 stores in North America.
In a statement, the company said it was cooperating to provide information and documentation to “answer questions relating to the importation of certain products.”
