TRENTON, N.J. -- FBI agents have carried out bags and boxes following a search of the home belonging to the mayor of New Jersey's capital city.

There's been no sign of Mayor Tony Mack and it's not clear what led to the raid in Trenton early Wednesday.

An FBI spokeswoman confirmed the search but wouldn't provide additional information.

Mack has drawn criticism since he was elected in 2010. The Democrat's first term in office has been punctuated by accusations of reckless spending and nepotism.

Under an agreement reached last year, Mack can only hire department heads from a pool of applicants the state offers or he risks losing $6 million in state aid.

A citizens group last year failed to get enough signatures to force a recall election.
