ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The Latest on an FBI raid on the home of Atlantic City N.J. mayor Frank Gilliam Jr. (all times local):
Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam Jr. has left his home after FBI and IRS agents appeared to have finished searching his house.
The first-term Democratic mayor did not respond to shouted questions from reporters Monday as he got into his sport utility vehicle and drove away.
The FBI would only say that it was executing a search warrant, declining further comment.
It remained unclear Monday afternoon what prompted the search.
Gilliam and several others were recently involved in an early morning fight outside an Atlantic City casino but local prosecutors announced last week they wouldn’t file criminal charges.
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.
FBI agents are searching the home of Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam.
The FBI’s Newark division confirms agents are at Gilliam’s house Monday executing a search warrant. It wasn’t immediately known what prompted the search.
Gilliam is in his first year as mayor. The former two-term city councilman defeated incumbent Don Guardian last November in a contentious election marked by allegations of voter fraud by Guardian.
Gilliam didn’t immediately return a phone message seeking comment on the investigation.
