Agents from the FBI's Newark division were executing a search warrant at Mayor Frank Gilliam Jr.'s home on Monday morning.

Gilliam, a Democrat, is in his first term as mayor after serving two as a city councilman. He beat out incumbent Don Guardian in a heated raced amid allegations of voter fraud.

Gilliam and several others were involved in an early morning fight last month outside an Atlantic City casino but local prosecutors announced last week they wouldn't file criminal charges. In April, a judge threw out a criminal complaint against Gilliam over the alleged theft of a $10,000 check from the Atlantic City Democratic Committee.
Gilliam didn't immediately return a phone message seeking comment on the investigation.
