On Thursday, dozens of FBI investigators and Florida police stormed Trump Tower III in Sunny Isles Beach’s “Little Moscow” to examine a condo unit held by a shell company run by two Russian businessmen named Oleg Sergeyevich Patsulya and Agunda Konstantinovna Makeeva.

In order to conduct a search of unit 4102, a group of FBI special agents and neighborhood police entered Trump Tower III at 15811 Collins Ave. According to state corporate records, it is owned by a front company called MIC-USA LLC which is under the management of the two Russian businessmen.

Trump agreed to have the 45-story apartment building named after him by the developers before he was elected president in 2016 in order to boost sales. Trump Towers experienced the same level of foreign interest as other Trump-branded buildings in Sunny Isles Beach, with a concentration of purchasers from Latin America and Russia.

According to Miami-Dade property records, MIC-USA, which bought the three-bedroom, three-bath unit residence in Trump Tower III for $1.65 million ten years ago, was one of the purchasers.

In 2020, Patsulya and Makeeva were accused of defaulting on their $975,000 mortgage by BAC Florida Bank, which had financed the transaction. Later that year, the matter was settled, although the details are unclear from the court documents. The 41st floor was still owned by MIC-USA, which the two Russians still had control over unit at Trump Tower III.
