David Copperfield's Warehouse Raided by FBI

Magician David Copperfield may be in hot water after law enforcement agents raided his Las Vegas warehouse.

The FBI conducted an investigation Wednesday at what Copperfield has called the International Museum & Library of the Conjuring Arts, where he reportedly stores memorabilia from his various performances inside.

Agents seized nearly $2 million in cash, as well as a computer hard drive and memory chip from his digital camera.

An FBI spokesman confirmed the search but wouldn’t elaborate, saying only that it stems from an investigation in Seattle. Copperfield’s lawyer said he wants to “respect the confidentiality of the investigation.”

Copperfield, 51, whose real name is David Kotkin, has performed for years in Sin City and around the world. He’s a regular performer at the MGM Grand.
