FBI Rolls SQUAD DEEP to Storm Mansion of YouTube Star Jake Paul and Seize Weapons

Multiple high-powered firearms were seized at YouTube star Jake Paul’s Los Angeles home during an FBI raid on Wednesday after heavily-armed agents in military vehicles descended on the property, Your Content can confirm.

“The FBI is executing a federal search warrant at a residence in Calabasas in connection with an ongoing investigation,” a spokesperson for the FBI told Your Content Wednesday afternoon.

“The affidavit in support of the search warrant is sealed and we are, therefore, prohibited from commenting as to the nature of the investigation.”

Aerial footage of the raid, taken by ABC7, showed law enforcement officers walking out of the $6.9million Calabasas mansion with several weapons in hand, before loading them onto police vehicles as apparent evidence.

Several FBI units dressed in tactical gear had arrived at the influencer’s mansion on the 23500 block of Parksouth Street earlier this morning, after executing a search warrant, TMZ reported.

At least 20 federal agents were seen riding in on a procession of military vehicles, including an armored truck, during the operation. Several U.S. government marked cars were also spotted in the vicinity.

Paul, 23, had been out of state during the raid, his attorney Richard Schonfeld told TMZ. The lawyer said they plan to cooperate with the investigation.

Sources told the LA Times a SWAT team was deployed to gain entry into the viral star’s house. The heavily-armed units are usually called in during situations that are deemed high-risk, such as properties where weapons are present.

Agents were reported to have searched the 15,000 square-foot home for about an hour and half, but details on what was seized were not disclosed.

The influencer also drew backlash last month for blatantly flouting social distancing guidelines as COVID-19 cases spiked in California, by throwing a massive party at the mansion.

Calabasas mayor Alicia Weintraub expressed ‘outrage’ over the ‘outrageous gathering’ in which dozens of people without masks drank and danced.

Your Content obtained videos from the party shortly after guests started to arrive, where revelers showed no concern for social distancing or wearing protective masks.

People were seen drinking, playing beer pong, and swinging off a construction backhoe at the gathering.

Revelers were both indoors and outdoors, crowded closely together without a mask in sight.

Calabasas mayor Alicia Weintraub was left outraged after learning of the party and says she’s looking into ‘all options’ for penalties for Paul.
