(AP) -- Agents with the FBI and IRS are gathering evidence inside the two homes of Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh and in City Hall.

FBI spokesman Dave Fitz says multiple agents are "executing court-authorized search warrants" at "both residences and City Hall."

The mayor's spokesman, James Bentley, said he has no immediate comment on the Thursday raids. Her attorney Steve Silverman, did not immediately return calls.

Pugh and five of her staffers are now on paid leave amid a scandal over her book sales.
