FBI Probes Vegas Warehouse of Magician David Copperfield

Magician David Copperfield's next trick just may be getting his property back from the feds. Thursday, the illusionist's Las Vegas warehouse was raided by twelve Seattle FBI agents.

Agents confiscated a pile of cash worth nearly two million dollars, a computer hard drive and a memory card.

The Seattle FBI office confirms an investigation was conducted in Las Vegas, but wouldn't confirm Copperfield was the target.

The Las Vegas FBI office says agents also went to the MGM Grand. Copperfield performs at the venue every other month.

The FBI say the MGM was not the target, but, would not comment on what they found at the hotel.

Copperfield's attorney says he and his client are in touch with investigators and they are respecting the confidentiality off the investigation.
