FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Authorities who raided Indiana properties owned by former New York Jets offensive lineman Jason Fabini and his brother searched three more Fort Wayne sites Friday.

The FBI hasn't said why the Safe Streets Task Force raided the sites. The group is comprised of federal, state and local officers and focuses on gangs and illegal drugs and firearms.

Fabini said Thursday in a statement issued by his attorney, Patrick Murphy, that he's not the investigation's target and has done nothing wrong. There is no phone listing for his brother, Michael Fabini.

"I have cooperated fully with authorities, and will continue to do so. I have not been charged, nor do I expect to be charged with a crime," the former player said. "I expect the community will have many questions as rumors circulate and this investigation continues, but I ask that we trust in the authorities to do their job."

Murphy didn't respond to a phone message seeking comment Friday.
