From KRON 4:

Agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided property owned by Oakland Mayor Sheng Thao Thursday morning, KRON4.com has confirmed. FBI agents arrived at Mayor Thao’s property in the 100 block of Maiden Lane in Oakland at 5:30 a.m., according to sources.

As of 7:30 a.m., agents remained on the scene. An FBI agent at the scene confirmed to KRON4 News that the address was being investigated. A San Francisco FBI spokesperson told KRON4 that the agency is conducting “court authorized law enforcement” at the property.

The FBI declined to provide additional details at this time.

The incident comes on the heels of a recall campaign against the mayor advancing to the November ballot.

The FBI raid followed a successful petition by Oakland residents to place a recall measure on the November ballot.

The group Oakland United to Recall Sheng Thao (OUST) announced that it had gathered 40,595 signatures supporting the recall effort to replace Thao.

Only 25,000 signatures are required to trigger a recall election.

OUST stated that they initiated the recall effort because crime has “gotten worse” under Thao’s time as mayor.
