Whatever the feds were looking for a Jake Pauls home apparently required a lot of backup and manpower because a small militia left his pad in armored trucks.

Journalist Rachel Greenspan has confirmed via a statement from the FBI that their raid is part of an ongoing investigation.
Thus far, Paul has not commented. The FBI isnt releasing any more details, either.
The search warrant is sealed, so its unclear what agents were looking for.
This Justice Might Not Just Be Poetic
This is just the latest controversy facing the so-called YouTube star, whos more famous for being infamous than he is for filming any sort of meaningful content for his channel.

Back in June, Jake Paul was arrested and charged with a few misdemeanors for allegedly participating in the looting of a mall in Scottsdale, AZ.

Paul and former NBA player Nate Robinson are currently scheduled to face off in a September 12 celebrity boxing match that will be the opening card for the Mike Tyson-Roy Jones Jr. fight.
It looks like the strong arm of the law could deliver him a knockout before he even steps into the ring. Then again, he and his ilk always seem to weasel out of whatever messes they create for themselves.
While Jake Paul could end up with more than a wrist-slap this time, I wont hold my breath. We have to enjoy every morsel of justice we can get even if were all guilty of schadenfreude as a result.
