PIEDMONT, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Two people have been charged after an investigation into a Piedmont gaming store prompted federal agents to raid the business, according to federal officials.

Bobby Moseley Sr. and Jerome Michael Caldwell were both charged with one count of operating an illegal gambling business and one count of money laundering, according to the indictment.

According to the indictment, the Secret Service seized $242 million in property and real estate, and $144 million used in money laundering. The indictment also said all weapons were removed from their home. 

Agents with the Internal Revenue Service and the Secret Service raided the store on Kiawa Lane on Wednesday, according to a source with the Secret Service.

There is no word yet what prompted the raid or what authorities are looking for, but FOX Carolina crews said they could count about a dozen sweepstakes machines outside the business and even more inside.

A neighboring business owner said agents had been out at the business for several hours.

Moseley and Caldwell were both given $100,000 bond at their hearing. The judge said they must also surrender their passports and they may not leave South Carolina.

In the indictment Gateway Systems, LLC, Gateway Gaming, LLC, Frontier Software Systems, LLC and Frontier Gaming, Inc. were named.
