CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Federal agents raided a Cotswold home Friday and arrested one man on federal charges.

Members of the FBI, DEA and ATF pulled evidence from 5552 Robinhood Road throughout most the morning.  

Glassware, large buckets and other materials used with chemicals were taken out on the house and tagged on the front lawn.

The homeowners' adult son, 24-year-old Raumeen Abdi Shiraz, was taken away in handcuffs. He is facing federal charges of attempting to sell class one chemicals without proper documentation.

The criminal complaint has been sealed. No bond has been set.

An internet search for Raumeen Shiraz pulls up several sites claiming to sell cheap chemicals.

Neighbors said they had no idea anything was going on at the house until the agents showed up Friday. 

Most neighbors agree the family of four living there was quiet and kind.
 
Raumeen Shiraz has a criminal record.

He was found guilty or aiding a minor in possessing a gun on school property and possession of a firearm by a felon in 2005, according to a search of court records conducted by our news partner The Charlotte Observer.

He was sentenced to three years of probation.
