FBI agents raided the upstate home of a payroll company owner embroiled in a potential $35 million fraud, the bureau said Tuesday.
A squad of investigators arrived in a half-dozen vehicles and spent about an hour combing through ValueWise CEO Michael Mann’s luxury lakeside house in Edinburg late Monday afternoon, according to a report by the Daily Mail.
Camera flashes were seen through the second-story windows of a partially completed addition, the Mail said.
Mann and his wife, Kim, moved to the sprawling, $500,000 house in Edinburg, about 45 miles northwest of Albany, about 18 months ago, the Mail said.
Kim refused to open the door when a reporter knocked and said her husband wouldn’t comment, the Mail said.
“I’m calling 911. Bye,” she added.
A spokeswoman for the FBI’s Albany field office confirmed that “FBI personnel were at that address yesterday in connection with an ongoing federal investigation.”
