Popular 20-million sub YouTuber Jake Paul was just raided by a small army and they discovered illegal firearms. No arrests have yet been made.
Jake Paul’s Calabasas, Los Angeles, home was raided by FBI agents earlier this morning. A team of heavily armed agents in armoured vehicles were seen leaving his property reportedly after discovering illegal firearms.
TMZ was first at the scene when they filmed what “a small militia” leaving Jake Paul’s property. There have been no official reports about why they were there, but new footage shows agents confiscating firearms from his Calabasas property.
TMZ reported that the federal agents at the LA mansion accompanied by several heavily armed SWAT teams in armoured vehicles.
“At least 20 heavily armed agents were seen doing the ground search of his property,” the reporter said. “This isn’t a prank gone wrong. We know it’s real this time.”
Due to the search warrant being sealed by a judge, the investigation remains highly confidential. This might indicate a terrorist investigation.
Curious observers speculated that the federal agents might have been tipped that Jake Paul was stashing illegal firearms due to the extreme response from the FBI. And, although it has not been confirmed by the authorities, it does seem to be the case.
the BBC used to a drone to record aerial footage of Jake Paul’s mansion and it appears as though the federal agents were removing illegal firearms from his premises.
Jake Paul is currently facing charges for criminal trespass after joining violent protesters who broke into a mall in Arizona. Video shows the 23-year-old YouTuber appear to participate in the looting himself.
Although he was only charged for a misdemeanour, the charges may be escalated to to a felony because he went out of state.
Jake Paul is currently in Los Angeles and has not posted on social media sine August 1st. We are still waiting a response from the famous YouTUber.
