COPY-FBI raids rapper's home, 2nd location in Las Vegas

Posted: Updated:
Two locations in Las Vegas, one of which is the home of rapper Mally Mall, were raided by FBI agents Monday morning in what a source described as a human trafficking investigation.

The first raid happened about 5 a.m. at a home near the intersection of Oquendo Road and Lamb Boulevard in southeast Las Vegas. According to the Clark County Assessor's website, the home belongs to Jamal Rashid, better known as rapper Mally Mall.

Neighbors said they heard loud bangs and helicopters overhead. Pictures of the scene showed shattered windows in a building on the property, and the wall of another building appeared to be charred.

Neighbors also said Monday's raid wasn't the first at the home.

"At least five or six years ago, this same house [was] raided," said a neighbor who declined to provide her name. "We never found out anything about that."

The second raid happened at a business near the intersection of Dean Martin Drive and Patrick Lane in south-central Las Vegas.

Workers at a neighboring business said they saw agents taking boxes of papers and computers out of the office. They also said they had seen many "scantily clad" women coming and going.

A source told FOX5's John Dabkovich that an escort service was based at the location.

Special Agent Joseph Dickey, of the FBI, could only say that a federal search warrant was being executed at Mall's home. However, Dabkovich's source said the raids were part of a human trafficking investigation.

Dickey said no arrests were made in connection with either raid.

According to his official website, Mall has worked with well-known hip-hop artists Usher, Young Jeezy and Drake.
