ANDERSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Upstate man in federal custody has ties to the Anderson County street where local and federal authorities were conducting an early-morning investigation on Saturday.

Anderson County deputies and FBI agents were on scene at a residence in the 900 block of Travis Road near Little Mountain Road as part of an ongoing investigation.

Authorities declined to release information about the investigation, but said a federal search warrant was being executed. Officials later confirmed an arrest was made in the case.

According to court records, 27-year-old Wesley Dallas Ayers of Anderson County was taken into custody on Saturday and charged with the federal offense of possession of an unregistered firearm.

Property records indicate that Ayers has ties to Travis Road where Saturday's federal investigation took place. 

Ayers was booked into the Anderson County Detention Center but an FBI hold was placed on him, according to jail records.

Additional records in the case have been sealed after a magistrate judge ruled the release of affidavit details might jeopardize the ongoing investigation.

The U.S Assistant Attorney released the following statement on the case:

“At this stage in the investigation, the US Attorney’s Office is not able to comment regarding an on-going investigation.”

A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Thursday.
