FBI agents raid north Raleigh home

Posted March 19
Updated March 20

— FBI agents raided a home at the Autumn Pointe Apartments on Bremer Hall Court Wednesday afternoon and collected items as part of an ongoing federal investigation.

Investigators collected what appeared to be weapons, including rifles and swords, and other items and placed them in the back of a FBI van.

Neighbors said a woman lives in the third floor apartment with her two sons. A background search shows one known relative with the same address – Akbar Jordan, a 21-year-old who attended Millbrook High School. He was arrested in 2011 for disorderly conduct. Jordan’s mother, Yolanda Reid, is the other known relative in the apartment.

One neighbor, who lives in the same building as the apartment, said an official told her that “investigators had gotten some bad people out of the building.”

It was unknown Wednesday evening if anyone was taken into custody, or why federal agents were at the home.

    Home grow terrorists... right here in Raleigh!
    AGAIN.

    But I doubt a few rifles and swords constitutes an "arsenal". If they do.... then I am a proud owner of an arsenal. LOL.

    Individuals can now stay in until they're 22! Can't imagine having a feshman at 14 going to school with a 22 year old. Thanks glorious state for your infinite wisdom!

    Oh yeah, and what if they had been carting a few guns out of a middle-aged white man's trailer... View More

    How do you know they're not white? They're last names are Jordan and Reid.

    I don't remember anyone coming to the defense of the Boyd clan from Johnston County

    That's true, although that was prior to the popular rise of the Tea Party, and right before things became glaringly polarized politically.

    I think a little more facts are needed here...I'd like to think/hope that before FBI raids a home they have some information and that they take more than some guns and swords. Although our government did just raided a gun shop against a court order
