Federal agents returned to Security Aviation on Saturday, but this time their search was more limited than the raids two weeks ago at the air charter company's facilities in Anchorage and Palmer and owner Mark Avery's C Street building.

FBI spokesman Eric Gonzalez said Monday that only Security Aviation's Gulfstream III executive jet was targeted by agents executing a search warrant Saturday at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.

Gonzalez wouldn't say what investigators were looking for or what they found. No additional people were arrested, he said, and the Gulfstream wasn't seized. Avery associate Rob Kane was arrested during the Feb. 2 raids and charged with possessing two rocket launchers without a permit. He remains in jail, denied bond as a flight risk.

Eight Czech military planes capable of being fitted with the rocket launchers were seized by federal agents a week ago and removed from the airport to an undisclosed of article HERE.
