• F.B.I. raids home and business in Brookhaven

    Updated:

    DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - The FBI raided a DeKalb County home and business Wednesday morning.

    Our cameras were rolling at a currency exchange company on Buford Highway and a house on East Brookhaven Drive as agents removed boxes of evidence.

    FBI agents, along with the Brookhaven Police Department, descended on the home before 7 a.m. and stayed through the day.

    We first showed you the scene on Channel 2 Action News at Noon, and again on Channel 2 Action News at 5 p.m. as agents continued to go in and out of the home.

    Agents were seen taking equipment in and removing plastic gloves when exiting the home.

    All day neighbors were quiet, but curious. Some took pictures of what was happening at the corner house. Neighbors tell us businessman Ty Rhame lives in the home with his wife and young child.

    Neighbors said Rhame is in the foreign currency business.

    Rhame's business, Sterling Currency Group, was the location of the second raid involving Brookhaven police, the FBI and U.S. Marshals.

    Channel 2’s Wendy Corona saw one marshal take a sledgehammer to Rhame's 4th floor unmarked office suite at the Druid Pointe Building.

    When asked to elaborate on the details behind the search warrants and what officials were gathering in the raids, the FBI sent a statement saying they are "not in a position to discuss the details of those searches at this time."
