1 person taken into federal custody in Black Mountain
Federal and local authorities served a search warrant and an arrest warrant Wednesday at a home on Third Street in Black Mountain.
Black Mountain Police Department officers assisted ICE Homeland Security Investigations agents in serving the warrants.
An ICE spokesman said one person was taken into custody as part of an ongoing federal investigation. He would not provide the name of the person arrested or the charges, saying only the person faces federal charges.
Black Mountain Police would only confirm local officers helped in a federal investigation.
