Feds raid Vas’s house

Indicted Assemblyman and former Perth Amboy Mayor Joseph Vas’s (D-Perth Amboy) home was raided by FBI agents this morning, according to a report in the Star-Ledger.

Vas was indicted by the state last month for allegedly stealing city funds for personal use, including using public money to pay for his son’s basketball camp, and for rigging an affordable housing lottery in favor of his personal driver, Anthony Jones. Both Vas and Jones pleaded not guilty.

The FBI agents were also going through the home of Vas’s next door, Melvin Ramos, a former mayoral aide and congressional campaign treasurer to Vas who was charged by the State Attorney General’s office last month with conspiracy, money laundering and official misconduct.
