Federal Authorities Raid Lumber Liquidators Headquarters
Federal authorities want to know where all that cheap wood at Lumber Liquidators comes from. On Thursday, the discount hardwood flooring retailer's headquarters in Toano, Va., and another location in Richmond, Va., were raided by special agents from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement's Homeland Security Investigations unit, together with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Justice Department. The agents were looking for evidence the company had imported wood products from forests in far eastern Russian that are home to the endangered Siberian tiger.
