Members of the El Cajon Police Department, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and the FBI worked together last week to conduct raids on a luxury car dealership and two local homes.
It was also reported that the IRS was involved with the raid at the dealership and the Drug Enforcement Agency was on hand during the raid of one of the homes. The federal agencies have said they are not permitted to make any comments at this time as cases against those arrested are still being built.
One of the homes targeted belonged to Amir Bahdor. He is described as being the manager of Autohaus San Diego, a specialty dealership that deals mostly in import, luxury cars. A local news station found that Autohaus five customers filed complaints against the business with the BBB during the current calendar year and that they currently have an “F” rating on the BBB website. Bahdor has been the defendant in a number of lawsuits in the past 20 years and has been accused of things ranging from fraud to breach of contract. The dealership was also raided.
The second home is reported to belong to Roman Bahador. Bahador’s home and Mercedes were searched. Neighbors say he recently moved to the neighborhood and told them he owned a car company called European Collections.
Law enforcement agencies have declined further comment as the matters are ongoing, but have noted the typical bail amount for possession of a controlled substance in San Diego County is approximately $15,000. Possession with the intent to distribute, however, can range from $150,000 and higher depending on the circumstance of the arrest.
