Firearms seized in FBI raid at YouTube star Jake Paul’s home

Federal agents recovered a cache of firearms from controversial YouTube star Jake Paul’s Los Angeles mansion following a raid there Wednesday, according to a report.


Authorities were seen seizing several firearms, including a long gun propped up against a hot tub in the backyard, from 23-year-old Paul’s property early Wednesday in Calabasas, news station KABC-TV reported.


There were also authorities spotted leaving the home in an armored SWAT truck and a dark-colored van, as well as a truck with several agents wearing military fatigues riding in the back, the Los Angeles Times reported.


The FBI confirmed that it had obtained search warrants for the property, though it’s unclear what was the nature of the investigation, ABC reported. No arrests were planned.


The raid comes after footage emerged of a raucous party hosted there last month that appeared to defy coronavirus restrictions in the Golden State.


Paul — who films pranks for his vlogs — previously was charged in early June with criminal trespassing and unlawful assembly for allegedly disregarding police orders to record looting at a mall in Arizona.
