FBI search of Calderon office ends after dark; boxes wheeled away
SACRAMENTO -- Federal agents wheeled boxes out of California state Sen. Ron Calderon’s Capitol office after dark on Tuesday night and exited through the garage, ending the first such raid in nearly three decades.
The agents spent hours in Calderon’s office before leaving with three cardboard boxes and multiple plastic cases.
A few boxes were rolled to a freight elevator on metal dollies. Two women carried a plastic folding table, and a man held a worn black briefcase.
Laura Eimiller, an FBI spokeswoman, would not discuss the details of the probe.
However, sources with knowledge of the probe said the search is part of a wider public corruption investigation in Los Angeles County.
