IRS agents today returned search warrants executed on properties and business connected to one of Baltimore's largest bail bondsmen Milton Tillman, Jr. and his son, Milton Tillman III.
According to court records, agents were looking for evidence of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, tax evasion, and illegally engaging in the business of insurance.
Five properties, a car, and a building at Dundalk Marine Terminal were searched Monday by IRS and FBI agents looking for records relating to the Tillmans. Agents took records related to bail companies 4 Aces, Xpress Bail Bond, and Global Surety, as well as two dozen property-holding companies related to the Tillmans, who own more than 100 properties in and around Baltimore worth more than $10 million.
Also of interest to the IRS were employment records from the International Longshoremen's Association. Tillman Jr. was convicted of tax evasion in 1996, after prosecutors said he reported an income from the ILA, while concealing his income from bail businesses and property rentals.
The IRS list of seized items runs to more than 40 pages, and includes computers, hard drives, property and tax records, a rolodex, invoices, credit cards, and a cell phone.
