Feds raid Victoria Gotti's home and auto parts business of her sons

Federal agents on Wednesday raided the Long Island home of Victoria Gotti, daughter of late mob boss John Gotti, and an auto parts store in Queens run by her sons with mobbed-up ex-husband, Carmine Agnello, sources said. Agents executing a search warrant from the Brooklyn US Attorney’s Office raided Gotti’s Old Westbury home and the store in Jamaica as part of an ongoing probe, sources said. The reasons for the searches were not publicly disclosed.
Gotti’s multimillion-dollar mansion features a pool with cascading water­falls, a tennis court and a four-car garage.
The auto parts store is run by Victoria’s three sons, Carmine Gotti Agnello, Frank Gotti Agnello and John Gotti Agnello.
Victoria, who married Agnello in 1984, was raised in Howard Beach, Queens, where her “Dapper Don” father ran the Gambino crime family.
The mob daughter starred in the reality television series “Growing Up Gotti” from 2004 through 2007 along with her sons. She also has published several books, including “Hot Italian Dish” in 2006.
Her ex-husband, whom she divorced in 2003, is currently awaiting trial in Cleveland on racketeering charges.
Authorities said he was involved in an alleged scheme to weigh down junked cars with sand and dirt before selling them for scrap metal.
Last month, in an earlier raid on the Gottis, authorities searched the Howard Beach home where the patriarch had lived with his family, and arrested his 23-year-old namesake grandson on drug charges.
The younger John Gotti was charged in August with illegal distribution of oxycodone and other prescription pills in Howard Beach and Ozone Park.
He allegedly was carrying a load of pills when he was pulled over in a traffic stop in Queens in July. Police said they recovered 205 oxycodone pills, 18 methadone pills, a bottle of testosterone, Xanax and marijuana.
He is awaiting a court appearance later this month.
