— Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and United States Department of the Treasury searched two Wake County locations linked to Raleigh-based VisionQuest Wealth Management on Wednesday, the headquarters on Hargett Street and the home of owner Stephen Peters on Theys Road, according to the FBI.

Search warrants were executed as part of an ongoing investigation.

According to the company website, VisionQuest is a wealth management firm for companies and individuals. It also provides business consulting services.

Peters was attempting to raise $14.2 million via debt financing for the company, and the company has reached around $11 million.

Peters' home is located at 5237 Theys Rd., on the same piece of property of Whispering Hope Stables, an equestrian farm in Raleigh near Lake Wheeler.

    The way I read this news is that, in short, Vision Quest is being investigated as well as the owner's home. Details to come later.

    I bet the people using the company to "manage their wealth" appreciate that someone thought it news. Why do people think if something doesn't apply to them it shouldn't be printed for anyone to read?

    Is this supposed to be a complete article? I don't see anywhere near enough info to justify it's placement in the news. I'm sure it's those pesky Feds, being tight lipped as usual. Guess we'll wait until one of them breaks ranks and speaks 'on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly about the investigation'.

    I always thought something fishy about this company. Like, why do they need a house in Costa Rica?
