UPDATE: TMZ says that the raid has to do with Jake Paul getting arrested at the Scottsdale Mall in May during a protest for George Floyd. Jake was accused of using the protest to loot the mall but he denied it.
Jake Paul seems to be in a wee bit more trouble than he usually is. If there’s one thing rich nosy neighbors hate more than unruly house parties in the middle of a global pandemic, it’s a caravan of armored trucks with dozens of police and FBI agents in paramilitary uniform armed to the teeth rolling in on a Wednesday morning setting off everybody’s car alarm. According to ABC7, federal agents raided Jake’s house in Calabasas this morning and found “multiple firearms scattered across the property, including a long gun propped up against a hot tub in the backyard” which were all seized. If you had asked me yesterday which infamous Calabasas home would be the subject of a sealed federal search warrant, well let’s just say, it wouldn’t be this one. Although it would be a close second guess.
We don’t yet know what the feds were looking for but judging from the footage, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess it was slightly more sinister than a bag of mushrooms Jake forgot he had stored in the freezer (that’s not so bad, right? AFAF). Here are the feds rolling in courtesy of TMZ. I imagine the joy felt by whichever TMZ dope has been sleeping in his car outside Jake Paul’s house for weeks when this shit rumbled by, must have been akin to winning a million dollars on a lottery scratcher.
According to ABC7:
FBI agents on Wednesday morning were serving a federal search warrant at the sprawling Calabasas home of YouTube personality Jake Paul, where several apparent firearms found throughout the property were seized.
“The affidavit in support of the search warrant is sealed and we are, therefore, prohibited from commenting as to the nature of the investigation,” the bureau said in a statement to ABC7, adding that no arrests were planned.
AIR7 HD was over the scene as what appeared to be multiple firearms scattered across the property, including a long gun propped up against a hot tub in the backyard, were being seized by authorities.
Here’s footage of the raid which shows agents collecting weapons and presumably helping themselves to free gum out of Jake’s bubble gum machine.

TMZ just issued an update stating that a similar raid was executed this morning at the Las Vegas home of Jake’s friend Armani Izadi.
Federal agents descended upon the famous Graffiti Mansion in Las Vegas Wednesday, which is said to be owned by Armani Izadi … who’s good buddies with Jake. In fact, the two of them were seen hanging out as recently as early July, getting into shenanigans together.
We got video of some people being led out of the mansion in cuffs — hard to tell who they are, but it doesn’t appear like Aramani or Jake are among them in this clip. Our law enforcement sources also tell us this raid is in connection to the L.A. property search.
Jake’s attorney issued a statement saying which reads “We understand that a search warrant was executed at Jake’s Calabasas home this morning while Jake was out-of-state. We are still gathering information and will cooperate with the investigation.” Speculation online about what type of shit Jake may have been into keeps coming back to this blind item originally posted by Crazy Days and Nights.
Do y’all understand how serious this Jake Paul shit is???? Whatever the FBI was looking for at Jake Paul's home required a warrant, a lot of backup and manpower … because a small militia left his pad in armored trucks. They seized a shit ton of guns too. pic.twitter.com/xBkvoXlCn8

I’m sure Jake’s not worried in the slightest. After all, he’s the most badass, hardcore, gangster in all of Calabasas (Kris Jenner excluded of course). That wet stain in the front of his pants is champagne and the brown stain in the back is some expensive ass chocolate pudding he sat in. AS A JOKE, PEOPLE!
