Gotti Gotcha? Feds Raid Victoria Gotti’s Mansion and Her Sons’ Car Business
On Wednesday, “Growing Up Gotti” star Victoria Gotti's Long Island home was reportedly raided by federal agents.
An auto parts store, run by Victoria's three sons, was also searched as part of an ongoing probe. According to Dailymail.com, the shop was previously owned by her ex-husband Carmine Agnello, who she divorced in 2003. Carmine reportedly gave up the shop and moved to Cleveland, where he is awaiting trial on racketeering charges. He pled not guilty to the charges last year, but did plead guilty to similar charges 15 years ago, the New York Post reports.
Though the reason for the raids has not been revealed, the investigation is being led by a federal prosecutor in the tax fraud section, the New York Daily News reports.
Last month, Victoria's son John, named after her father, mob boss John Gotti, was arrested on drug charges after the authorities searched his grandpa's home in Howard Beach. He was charged for illegal distribution of oxycodone and other prescription pills.
A month before the arrest, police found 205 oxycodone pills, 18 methadone pills, Xanax, marijuana, and a bottle of testosterone in John's car when he was pulled over for a traffic stop. John is awaiting a court date.
