Fifty FBI agents raided the city hall building of Toa Baja, PR yesterday, November 22, at 6 am. They were seeking information regarding “financial crimes and public corruption.”
The FBI did not disclose particulars of the investigation, but will be announcing their results “within two weeks.”
Meanwhile, in related news, El Nuevo Dia reports that government documents “have been shredded” for the last several days, before the FBI could arrive.
Also today, the same day as the FBI raid, the ex-mayor of Toa Baja (Anibal Vega Borges) abruptly resigned his position as Commissioner of Elections for the PNP political party.
EX-MAYOR ACCUSED OF FEDERAL TAX FRAUD
In addition, 19 municipal employees have filed a lawsuit against ex-mayor Borges, which accuses him of income tax fraud.
During the Borges administration, over $1.5 million in social security taxes were withheld from the municipal employees of Toa Baja, but the funds were not turned over to the IRS.
For this reason, the IRS froze all the bank accounts of Toa Baja…and this triggered the immediate shutdown of the entire city government.
