BALTIMORE (AP) — FBI agents raided Roy McGrath’s Florida home Wednesday morning, two days after the one-time top aide to former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan failed to appear in Baltimore federal court to stand trial on corruption charges.

His attorney, Joseph Murtha, said McGrath’s wife, Laura Bruner, who was home during the FBI raid, has been cooperating with authorities. The U.S. Marshals Service declared McGrath a wanted fugitive.

McGrath stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from the state, including a fraudulent severance payment he obtained after leaving his position as executive director of the Maryland Environmental Service to become Hogan’s chief of staff in 2020, according to a grand jury indictment.
