A search and seizure warrant was issued Tuesday afternoon for Room 518 at City Hall. On Wednesday night, agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Internal Revenue Service and Department of Housing and Urban Development executed their search of Room 518, which houses the city’s Division of Engineering and Construction, a part of the Mayor’s Office of Capital Projects.

An evidence recovery log shows at least 10 different types of items were seized, including documents related a business and properties owned by a Khalil Ewais, a longtime City of Cleveland employee.

Ewais is the city’s Chief Construction Engineer. According to his LinkedIn profiled, Ewais has worked for the City of Cleveland since 2006.

Federal agents seized documents and maps for a property owned by Ewais on the corner of West 61st and Storer Avenue in Cleveland. They also took documents related to Pioneer Engineering, a company owned by Ewais.

Ewais has not been charged in the investigation.
