DEA raids foundation of Saints superfan Jarrius ‘JJ’ Robertson – (NOLA.COM) Saints News
Federal DEA agents executed search warrants Wednesday morning (Oct. 24) at the foundation connected to New Orleans Saints superfan Jarrius “JJ” Robertson.

Agents raided the home of Jarrius’ father, Jordy Robertson, in Reserve, and their organization, “It Takes Lives to Save Lives Foundation” in LaPlace, a spokeswoman for the Drug Enforcement Administration said. No arrests were made.

Robertson has garnered national attention after his “adoption” by the New Orleans Saints. His nonprofit organization raises money for medical expenses as he battles the chronic liver disease biliary atresia. 

Jordy Robertson confirmed that the DEA is looking into his taxes and the organization, our partners at Fox 8 WVUE-TV reported.

“I don’t know what the allegations are,” Robertson told the station. “I have a lawyer working on this and I maintain my innocence. The only thing I do is give back to the community. I’m focused on helping people.”

The DEA spokeswoman would not reveal the nature of the investigation but said the DEA is the lead agency in the case and that there are multiple state and local agencies involved.

In general, DEA investigations begin as drug investigations, but the agency will investigate other crimes they come across, such as money laundering, she said.
