California State Senator Leland Yee Arrested by the FBI in San Francisco

March 26, 2014

State Sen. Leland Yee was arrested this morning by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as the agency executed numerous raids and arrest warrants throughout the Bay Area, an FBI spokesman said.

One of warrants was served at the Ghee Kung Tong Supreme Lodge in San Francisco’s Chinatown, which houses the Chinese Freemasons of the World at 36 Spofford St., FBI spokesman Peter Lee said.

Among the arrestees was also Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow, who has a lengthy prior criminal history dating back to the 1970s and connections to Chinatown-based gangs. Chow was arrested at the lodge, Lee said.

Yee is scheduled to appear before a U.S. Magistrate Judge Nathanael Cousins this afternoon at 1:30 p.m., Lee said. SFgate.com is reporting Lee was arrested on public corruption charges.

FBI agents were at the Ghee Kung Tong building throughout the morning and were expected to bring down materials and equipment over the next several hours, FBI Special Agent Michael Gimble said.

Uniformed agents were leaving the red building throughout the morning, with some of them carrying bulletproof vests in their hands.

At around 11:30, a small group of San Francisco firefighters brought into the Ghee Kung Tong building a circular saw and a hand-held Jaws of Life tool. They declined to offer details on why the equipment was needed.
