FBI Illegally Seized $86M From Owners Of Safe Deposit Boxes

  • A class-action lawsuit has been filed against the U.S. government that accuses the FBI of illegally seizing the contents of 400 safe deposit boxes in Beverly Hills, California, as part of a money laundering drug operation.
  • The raid happened in March 2021 at U.S. Private Vaults, which has since pleaded guilty to conspiracy and money laundering. Yet the FBI is still holding the contents of boxes belonging to hundreds of people who have not been charged with any crimes, according to court documents.
