FBI, IRS agents search Baltimore Mayor's homes, City Hall

BALTIMORE Federal agents executed search warrants Thursday morning at two homes belonging to Baltimore's embattled mayor and at City Hall.

Dave Fitz, an FBI spokesman out of the agency's Baltimore office, says agents with the FBI and the IRS criminal division in Washington were "executing court-authorized search warrants" at "both residences and City Hall." He said he couldn't immediately release more information because the search warrants are sealed.

Mayor Catherine Pugh's spokesman, James Bentley, said he has no immediate comment. Pugh's defense attorney, Steve Silverman, did not immediately return calls.

Pugh has been facing mounting calls for her to resign over a scandal that involves the sale of her children's books to entities that do business with the city. She was already already facing a criminal investigation by the state prosecutor's office, which began at the request of Republican Gov. Larry Hogan, as well as probes by the Baltimore Inspector General, an ethics board at City Hall and a state insurance commission.
