FBI raids YouTuber Jake Paul’s LA mansion, seen confiscating weapons


The FBI was executing a federal search warrant Wednesday morning at the home of YouTube star Jake Paul in California, according to the agency.

The search at Paul’s home in Calabasas is related to an ongoing investigation, but the FBI could not immediately disclose any details because the affidavit in the case is “sealed,” a spokesman for the agency’s Los Angeles office told the Daily News.

The 23-year-old vlogger and social media influencer has not publicly addressed the incident and could not immediately be reached for comment.

Wednesday’s search comes two months after he was accused of participating in looting and riots at a mall in Arizona. He was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing and unlawful assembly.
