FBI agents made a stop in Hoboken on Thursday to perform “official law enforcement business,” their press office exclusively confirmed to Hudson County View, with multiple sources stating they stopped by a well-known accounting firm on Adams Street.

“I can only confirm that the FBI was there on official law enforcement business,” U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Matt Reilly said in an email Thursday when asked if the FBI was in Hoboken earlier in the day.

Sources, who spoke under the condition of anonymity since they were not authorized to speak on the matter, said that FBI agents converged on the 518 Adams St. office of Cannarozzi & Picardo around noon two days ago.

Louis Picardo, one of the partners at the accounting firm, served as the CFO for the City of Hoboken for about six months between 2003 and 2004.

Back in 2011, the state Superior Court ruled that Picardo had to remove an extension to a property he owned at 920 Castle Pt.

Matthew Cannarozzi is the other partner at the accounting firm, which has called the Mile Square City home for decades.

No one answered the door at their office on Friday around 3 p.m. and they also did not answer calls to their business line.
