FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Authorities have raided northeast Indiana properties owned by former New York Jets offensive lineman Jason Fabini and his brother.

Federal, state and local officers with the Safe Streets Task Force raided a Fort Wayne property owned by Jason Fabini, a home owned by his brother, Michael Fabini, and five other area properties Thursday.

FBI Special Agent David Crawford declined Friday to say why the properties were raided, saying only that there was “investigative activity” going on there. The task force focuses on combatting illegal drugs and violent crime.

Jason Fabini issued a statement through his attorney saying he wasn’t the target of the investigation and wasn’t involved in criminal activities.

Fabini played eight seasons for the Jets, one for the Dallas Cowboys and two for the Washington Redskins.
