On Wednesday, 9/14, Victoria Gotti’s Long Island mansion, used in her 2004-2007 show “Growing up Gotti”, was raided by Federal IRS agents. At the same time warrants were executed for her sons auto shop in Queeens, NY.
Early before dawn, agents raided the ‘Old Westbury’ Long Island mansion, and the family owned auto parts shop in Queens. The shop was owned by Victoria’s then husband, Carmine Agnello.
Once he went to prison for 9 years regarding racketeering charges, he left for Cleveland and remarried. The auto parts shop stayed in the family, and Victoria’s sons, Carmine, John and Frank Gotti now run it.
The feds showed up at the two locations at the same time with warrants from the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney’s office.
No one is under arrest, and nothing specific has been mentioned to why both the mansion or the auto shop raids took place, at the same time.
This is the second time in the past few weeks that law enforcement have served warrants and made arrests on Gotti family members.
On August 4, 2016 John J. Gotti, grandson of John Gotti Senior, was arrested at his grandmother Victoria’s home in Howard Beach. He was charged with selling oxycodone and other pharmaceutical drugs, along with his girlfriend who was also living in his grandmothers home.
This incident was followed by the Feds for the past 12 months and undercover detectives purchased more than $46,000 worth of Oxycodone. Gotti is being charged with racketeering and money laundering. He and others are facing 25 years to life in prison.
Further updates will be posted as the news is revealed.
Victoria Gotti has a sister Angel Gotti and 2 brothers, Peter and John “Junior” Gotti from the late John Gotti, ‘Dapper Don’, who died in prison in 2002.
On her own Victoria has written several thriller novels, and in 2004 A&E showcased exploits of Victoria and the Gotti boys with their slicked-back hair, and thick New York accents.
This is just the beginning of what the IRS may, or may not have ‘stuck’ on the Gotti’s.
Further updates will follow.
