Secret Service seizes plane in Anderson County
ANDERSON — Secret Service agents have seized an airplane thought to be linked to two Anderson County men accused in a gambling and money laundering operation.
The Anderson Independent-Mail reported the Beechcraft Super King Air 200 valued at $1 million had been stored at the Anderson Regional Airport for about a year..
Investigators think it is linked to J. Michael Caldwell and Bobby Mosley Sr.
Interim airport manager Steve Smith said agents were there late last week to take the eight-passenger plane that had leather seats and mahogany trim.
Smith said the staff at the airport considered Caldwell and Mosley to own the plane.
An indictment unsealed last week accuses Caldwell and Mosley of overseeing an operation that has accounted for $386 million in illegal gambling and money-laundering proceeds since 2005.
