FBI, IRS Raid Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam's House

Last Edited:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

Federal authorities have raided the home of embattled Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam.

On the morning of Monday, December 3rd, agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) executed a search warrant at Gilliam's home in Atlantic City removing a computer, a printer, and several boxes, according to Breaking AC.

The search ended early in the afternoon, but it is unknown what prompted the search and the FBI has yet to release any further information.

This comes just days after the Cape May County Prosecutor's Office announced it would not be filing criminal charges against Gilliam and Atlantic City Councilman Jeffree Fauntleroy following a physical altercation outside of an Atlantic City casino.

In April, a judge threw out a criminal complaint against Gilliam over the alleged theft of a $10,000 check from the Atlantic City Democratic Committee.

The first-term Democratic mayor did not respond to shouted questions from reporters as he left his home following the search.
