FBI Raids El Sobrante Real Estate Office
EL SOBRANTE (CBS SF) — The Federal Bureau of Investigation served a search warrant at a business in El Sobrante on Wednesday, an FBI spokeswoman confirmed.
FBI spokeswoman Julie Sohn said federal agents served the warrant in the 4900 block of Appian Way, but said she could not disclose further details about the operation since the search warrants are sealed.
According to a neighbor, cars and people poring over documents filled the parking lot of Pinnacle Realtors’ office Wednesday afternoon, located at 4990 Appian Way.
The neighbor said he knew little about the company, which moved into the building about two years ago. The building previously housed a deli, he said.
According to Pinnacle Realtors’ website, the business is owned by Juan Mancheno of Orinda, who specializes in FHA financing for first-time buyers and other real estate services.
Mancheno declined to comment Wednesday.
