David Copperfield — Investigated by the FBI

Magician David Copperfield is being investigated by the FBI.

Authorities won’t comment about the investigation, but did confirm that agents raided Copperfield’s personal belongings Wednesday night. We’re told agents searched a warehouse in Vegas where Copperfield stores items for his show.

The investigation stems reportedly from an ongoing case in Seattle. TMZ spoke to an FBI spokesperson who refused to comment, only saying there was an ongoing investigation.

Eyewitness News in Vegas is reporting that 12 agents “stormed the warehouse,” seizing a computer hard drive, a digital camera system and nearly $2 million in cash.

David Chesnoff, Copperfield’s lawyer, told TMZ, “We understand there is an investigation, we are in touch with the investigators, and are respecting the confidentiality of the investigation.” Chesnoff would not comment on the nature of the investigation.? Source

    David Copperfield is the master of illusion. If he can make an airplane or the Statue of Liberty vanish in thin air he can surely make himself scarce. If not his fat wallet should be able to make the charges disappear.
