CALABASAS, Calif. (CNS) -- A federal warrant was served Wednesday at YouTube star Jake Paul's home in Calabasas.

The warrant was being served in connection with an ongoing investigation, said Laura Eimiller of the FBI's Los Angeles office.

No arrests are planned, Eimiller said. Further details were not being released because the warrant is under seal, she said.

Footage from an ABC7 helicopter showed multiple firearms on the property being seized by authorities, "including a long gun propped up against a hot tub in the backyard," the station reported.

Eimiller declined comment on that report, indicating that an FBI statement on the operation was pending.

It was unclear if Paul was at the location when FBI agents served the warrant.

Paul is known for his often controversial YouTube stunts. He hosted a party at the Calabasas home a couple weeks ago that drew criticism on social media after guests were shown not wearing face coverings or social distancing.
