Agents from U.S. Homeland Security Investigations, accompanied by Kennedale police officers, raided a Kennedale mobile home Wednesday morning, officials said.
Both police and a Homeland Security spokesman declined to say what provoked the raid or what was found.
Star-Telegram media partner WFAA reported that the federal agents filled three trucks with U.S. Postal Service boxes, numerous files and a computer.
WFAA interviewed a man who lives at the home named Luis who said the raid “stem[med] from some sort of international Internet business that deals with electronics.”

The agents executed a search warrant shortly before 9 a.m. at the Avalon Mobile Home Park with the assistance of the two Kennedale officers, Kennedale police Capt. Darrell Hull said Wednesday afternoon. The officers helped secure the residence and provided outside security at 520 North Road Lot No. 52.
The agents and officers left about 1 p.m., he said.
The federal agents acquired the search warrant after their own investigation, Kennedale Police Chief Tommy Williams said. The local department was instructed by Homeland Security to send inquiries pertaining to the raid their way, he said.
Carl Rusnok, a spokesman with U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, declined to provide information Wednesday afternoon, other than saying that no one was arrested and that the investigation is ongoing.
Homeland Security Investigations is an arm of the Department of Homeland Security that targets illegal activity in travel, trade, financial and immigration systems, according to its website.
The Kennedale case is not an immigration issue, officials said.
