Federal agents raided the home of Victoria Gotti, who is the daughter of deceased mafia boss John Gotti, along with an auto parts store in Queens managed by her sons with mobbed-up ex-husband, Carmine Agnello.

A search warrant issued by the Brooklyn US Attorney’s Office led agents to raid Gotti’s lavish Long Island residence and the auto parts store in Jamaica, Queens as part of an ongoing investigation, according to sources. The motive behind the raids has not been revealed by authorities.

Gotti’s multimillion-dollar estate contains a four-car garage, a pool with water­falls, and a tennis court.

The auto parts store is managed by Victoria’s three sons, Carmine Gotti Agnello, John Gotti Agnello, and Frank Gotti Agnello.

Victoria Gotti who married her ex-husband back in 1984, grew up in Howard Beach, Queens, where her “Dapper Don” father was the head of the Gambino organized crime family.

The daughter of the infamous mobster got her own reality series called “Growing Up Gotti” that aired between 2004 and 2007. She also has written several books, including “Hot Italian Dish,” which was published in 2006.

Her ex-husband is in Cleveland awaiting trial on racketeering charges.

According to the New York Post, law enforcement officials allege that Agnello was implicated in a scheme to weigh down scrapped cars with dirt and sand before selling them for scrap metal.

In August, in a previous raid on the Gotti’s, police searched the Howard Beach home where the patriarch had lived, and took his 23-year-old namesake grandson into custody on drug-related charges.

Victoria Gotti’s nephew was charged with illegal distribution of oxycodone and other prescription pills.

The man had a load of prescription drugs on him when he was pulled over for a routine traffic stop in Queens in July. Police announced that they discovered 18 methadone pills, 205 oxycodone pills, a bottle of testosterone, marijuana, and Xanax in his center console.

He is scheduled to appear in court in late September.
