OCTOBER 19, 2007 | A dozen FBI agents stormed a warehouse owned by famed magician and illusionist David Copperfield last night, coming away with evidence for an investigation that apparently reaches all the way to Seattle.
According to a report broadcast last night by a local Las Vegas television station, the FBI took a computer hard drive and a memory chip from a digital camera system. The agents also took some $2 million in cash stuffed in a safe in the warehouse, the report said.
The FBI also paid a visit to the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, where Copperfield often performs.
Both the FBI and Copperfield’s attorney confirmed that there is an investigation ongoing in the area, but the purpose of the investigation, like Copperfield’s tricks, is still a mystery.
