Teresa Giudice’s New Jersey mansion was reportedly raided by police early Monday morning, and the cops are said to have confiscated property after the couple failed to set-up a payment plan, according to RadarOnline.
The Inquisitr reports that, according to a December 18 report by Rumorfix, the feds were “granted a court order to raid their home. They arrived unannounced and Teresa was surprised; however, she had no choice but to let them in.
“The judge who sentenced her, Judge Esther Salas, signed the warrant allowing them to enter. While there, they found lots of real jewelry, which had a high monetary value."
Another source told Radar, “Plasma televisions, expensive jewelry, cash, and even the kids’ Christmas presents were taken.”

During Giudice’s house raid, the feds reportedly confiscated all of the reality star’s jewelry, except her wedding band.
“They were there for hours and during the raid she was not allowed to leave the kitchen whatsoever.”
In March, The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband, Joe, pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud, including bankruptcy, fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud, and failure to pay taxes.

According to reports, Giudice claimed her jewelry was all “costume” jewelry.
“The Giudices have a lot of possessions that they did not try to claim when first granted the opportunity to rightfully do so. Due to additional information that was received after the, the feds felt they had no choice but to do this.”
Looks like the next thing to go is the house.
“The property will now be auctioned off with the money going into a trust account. If there is any money left over, it would go to paying creditors in their bankruptcy, in which they owe $14.3 million,” the insider told Radar.
