Homeland Security agents visited the car dealership in Arkansas where former reality star Josh Duggar works after the family denied that their family home had been raided earlier this week, according to Fox News.
Investigators visited the Springdale, Ark., car dealership on Wednesday and have made clear that the Duggars are in federal agents’ sights. The raid was in connection with a federal probe, but it is unclear at the time what is being investigated or what the Duggar’s involvement might be.
The family, best known for their television shows “19 Kids and Counting” and “Counting On” released their own statement.
“We were shocked to see a news report today state that our home was raided by federal law enforcement agencies,” the Duggars told People on Tuesday. “This is not true.”
“To the best of our knowledge, it’s also not true that any member of our family is the target of any investigation of any kind,” the statement said.
Yet, a Homeland Security spokesperson told KNWA on Tuesday: “[I do not dispute the information that] HSI was present there [Duggar home] pursuant to an ongoing federal criminal investigation.”
