According to several local sources, the home of Ward 5 Councilmember Harry Thomas Jr. was raided this morning by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Treasury Department in connection to an on-going investigation. It’s not immediately clear if this is related to Thomas’ admission that he would return $300,000 of city money earmarked for youth sports goods, or if this is a new charge.

Agents impounded a motorcycle and an SUV at the Thomas house, but have not to date captured Thomas’ Audi that was purchased with that money.

As a Ward 5 resident, I hope that Thomas thinks long and hard before saying anything at Monday’s reading of the Ethics bill before the Council.
