FBI agents search Coniglio’s house, office

20 11 2007


Federal agents this morning raided the Paramus home and legislative office of state Senator Joseph Coniglio as part of an ongoing corruption investigation targeting the Bergen County Democrat, according to his staff and a source close to the probe.

FBI agents arrived at Coniglio’s office at about 9 a.m. with a search warrant, said Terry Romano, his office administrator. They were still searching the office at about 11:30, but had not seized anything, she said.

Authorities were simultaneously searching Coniglio’s nearby home, according to a source close to the investigation who requested anonymity.
