FBI conducts raids over yeshiva-linked tech grant scam

FBI agents are carrying out raids in communities north of New York City as part of a probe into whether yeshivas improperly spent used federal grant money.

Dozens of agents in Monsey and Kiryas Joel are seen knocking on doors of homes and business with search warrants and carting away boxes of files.

No arrests have been made, according to Lohud.com

The raids are tied to investigations going on since at least 2013 into whether Jewish schools took millions through the federal E-Rate program, which provides money for computers and other technological equipment for schools, and spent it elsewhere.

The local attorney generals office has not provided comment, Lohud reports.
