YOUNGSVILLE, NC — Eros-Guide’s call center was raided today and according to investigators on scene, the seizure of alleged evidence is likely to be going on through the night.
Adult Industry attorney Joe Obenberger told XBIZ Magazine that “boxes of computers and records depicted on video are being hauled off.” said Obenberger. So far, no one has been arrested or taken into custody by Homeland Security.
Obenberger further added that the Eros-Guide raid is part of an internationally synchronized operation, but I have no confirmation of that,” said Obenberger, who by the way is not involved in this case but did identify Eros-Guide as the company raided.
Industry veterans know that Eros-Guide operates several popular heterosexual adult brands, including Eros.com, Eros Escorts, as well as The Ultimate Guide to Eros Escorts among others.
The story was so big that even ABC News reported that the raid at the company’s offices in Youngsville, N.C., which was conducted with a warrant in hand by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security hsa been on scene confiscating alleged evidence to support the warrant.
According to witnesses on scene, the raid sprung into action at 10:30 a.m. (EST), when nearly a dozen black vehicles stormed Bolma Star Services, which also includes a data center.
ABC News reported that the search warrant is sealed in federal court and officials could not elaborate on the investigation.
