The FBI didn’t raid YouTube star Jake Paul‘s Calabasas mansion for assault rifles displayed in one of his videos. The firearms seized during the FBI raid are now in the hands of the L.A. County Sheriff, TMZ reports.
According to London’s Dailymail.com, Paul purchased the sprawling 15,000 sq. ft. mansion for $6.9 million when he was 20 in 2017.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the feds seized a collection of assault rifles during a raid of the star’s home on Wednesday.
ABC 7 News aired drone footage of law enforcement officers walking out of the home carrying long guns and assault rifles.
Reports initially stated the feds raided the home with a search warrant to seize the firearms Paul displayed in a YouTube video.
The assault rifles were perched on a wall of Paul’s bedroom during a YouTube prank.
According to TMZ, the raids were connected to looting at a Scottsdale, Arizona mall, where Jake and a friend were live-streaming during Black Lives Matter riots in June.
The FBI was searching for merchandise stolen during looting at the mall. Authorities did not disclose what they found inside the residence. Paul was not taken into custody.
