Igor Borodin, 26, made his first court appearance Friday in federal court. Borodin is accused of trafficking counterfeit air bags as part of a multi-state crime ring.
Borodin is not a United States citizen; neighbors told WBTV his family is from Eastern Europe.
Federal prosecutors said they found a large amount of cash at Borodin's residence in Indian Trail and that the cash, coupled with Borodin's citizenship, made him a flight risk. A judge agreed Friday, telling Borodin he would be held in jail without bond until a bond hearing Wednesday. Borodin was also assigned a public defender.
Federal investigators spent most of Thursday at a home just across the Union County line. Agents stormed 4002 Crismark Drive just before 10 a.m.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement led the investigation.
Neighbors told WBTV's David Spunt that a man was taken away by federal agents earlier in the day.
That man, later identified as Borodin, is being held at Mecklenburg-County Jail as a federal prisoner.
Agents could be seen loading boxes onto a large box truck that was almost full.
Neighbors told WBTV the family that owns the home was from Moldova.
WBTV asked the U.S. Attorney's office in Charlotte for information on whether the alleged counterfeit air bags posed a threat to the public. A spokeswoman said her office was not releasing a statement on the possible risk to the public at this time. WBTV will continue to seek more information on what to do if you think you may have a counterfeit air bag.
Borodin is being held in federal custody while prosecutors appeal a judge's decision to release him on a $25,000 bond.
