An attorney for Rancho Cucamonga developer Jeff Burum said federal officials on Wednesday returned all materials seized from Burum’s home and office during an FBI raid on Sept. 15.
“I can confirm that, pursuant to the stipulation between the parties and the subsequent order by the federal judge, the FBI has returned all materials that it seized at Mr. Burum’s residence and business offices,” Burum’s attorney Stephen Larson said.
Larson argued in federal court in the days following the raid that agents violated Burum’s civil rights when they erroneously declared in a search warrant affidavit they did a walk-through of Larson’s office, in Larson’s presence and with his consent, during the search.
In response, federal agents admitted to the error, chalking it up to an oversight, but stood by the integrity of their search.
