Channel 9 reporter Greg Suskin was the first reporter on the scene and saw gloved evidence technicians bagging evidence at the sprawling lakefront home. Greg also saw agents seize at least one computer from the home and load it into a large truck.

Neighbors said unmarked vehicles appeared just after 8 a.m. and FBI agents spent more than five hours at the home before leaving.

According to tax records, the home belongs to James and Jennifer Maier. The couple has only lived there a few weeks. Records show the home sold recently for $1.2 million.

Neighbor Mike Kelly said he helped to welcome the couple to the neighborhood.

"Clean cut, army veteran. I know he was airborne," Kelly said.

Channel 9 has not been able to confirm if the investigation involves Maier or the property’s former owner. The family's lawyer was at the home for most of the day.

The FBI's Columbia office would only confirm there was an investigation but would not say why.
