The Federal Bureau of Investigation allegedly seized several firearms after raiding the home of YouTuber Jake Paul. Agents arrived with a warrant to search the YouTuber’s Calabasas home on Wednesday morning—but the reason for the search or the property seizure was unclear. BuzzFeed News later cited an FBI spokesperson in Phoenix saying the raid was conducted as part of an investigation into “allegations of criminal acts” during looting at an Arizona mall. In June, Paul was charged with criminal trespass and unlawful assembly after attending a riot at a Scottsdale, Arizona, mall amid nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd in May.
The FBI said no arrests were planned, and that the affidavit supporting the search warrant was sealed. The Wednesday morning search came about two weeks after Paul hosted a party that caused backlash from neighbors and Mayor Alicia Weintraub, who publicly expressed her outrage that “somebody would hold such an outrageous gathering in our community.”
