    The local outlet reports the raid comes a day after a federal grand jury indicted the Perry County Republican and four allies on racketeering conspiracy charges for allegedly running a $60 million bribery scheme using FirstEnergy money to pass a $1.3 billion bailout of two nuclear power plants.

    The search warrant, approved Thursday evening, sought six boxes and four envelopes containing computers, storage devices, records, calendars, call lists, photographs, as well as evidence of who used the computers and how, according to a copy of the warrant obtained by the Dayton Daily News.
