Attorney: ICE raid focused on employee, not business

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Wednesday morning, immigration and customs officers with the Department of Homeland Security conducted some sort of raid on Pass Rd. in Gulfport.

Officers wearing bullet proof vests as well as undercover officers could be seen going in and out of a used car business.

An attorney for that company called WLOX News Now and stressed the ICE raid focused on an employee's computer. He told us the search had nothing to do with the business' operation.

A Homeland Security spokesman confirmed agents entered the Pass Rd. business Wednesday, but he couldn't say why.
