A December 29 report, initially from Romanian outlet Libertatea claimed that Andrew Tate’s home in Pipera had been raided by Romanian police in relation to the abduction of two girls. Now, Tate and his brother have both been taken into custody.
The raid is said to be carried out by DIICOT, the Directorate for Investigating Organized Crime and Terrorism in Bucharest.
As the news broke, a clip emerged that showed Tate being led out of the villa in police custody, but no further context has been given at this time.
The authorities have reportedly focused attention on a number of luxury vehicles at the residence. Antenna 3 CNN reports that a police trailer is on-site, possibly to uplift one or multiple vehicles.
The same outlet also reports that the home of a former policewoman has been raided in connection to the investigation.
Back in April of 2022, Andrew Tate faced allegations of human trafficking in Romania, the country in which he resides.

One Twitter user suggested that a video posted by Tate yesterday was how Romanian authorities found him.
“Romanian authorities needed proof that Andrew Tate was in the country so they reportedly used his social media posts. His ridiculous video yesterday featured a pizza from a Romanian pizza chain, Jerry’s Pizza, confirming he was in the country.”
Not only did Greta Thunberg destroy Andrew Tate with her tweet, she made him so angry he inadvertently tipped off Romanian authorities of his presence in Romania with his lame comeback video.

The news of his arrest came hours after it was reported that his home in Romania was raided.
“Andrew Tate has just been raided by Romanian anti terrorism authorities,” tweeted The Serfs on Twitter.
