Police took away the couple's BMW and bags and boxes of unknown items from their home.

United States law enforcement officials converged Thursday on the New Jersey home of the couple accused of stealing money from a GoFundMe campaign set up to help Johnny Bobbitt, a homeless man whose kindness to a stranger touched hearts across the nation and beyond.

No charges have been filed. "Further updates will be provided as circumstances warrant".

The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill reports Florence police were at the home of Katelyn McClure and Mark D'Amico on Thursday morning.

In an August 27 interview with NBC News' Megyn Kelly on "Today", D'Amico and McClure said that after they paid fees to GoFundMe for setting up the account, there was about $350,000 in donations remaining, which they transferred to their private bank account because Bobbitt didn't have one.

"I am not going to allow you to be their voice anymore", said Dow, a former state attorney general, according to the Associated Press.

Last year, a man named Johnny Bobbitt gave $20 to Kate McClure when her auto ran out of gas. To thank Bobbitt for his kindness, McClure and her boyfriend subsequently set up a campaign on the crowdfunding site GoFundMe that was meant to help Bobbitt get back on his feet.

In purported text messages between D'Amico and Bobbitt before the lawsuit and investigation, D'Amico seems to contradict his and his girlfriend's claim that they did not want to give a drug addict control of so much money.

Whether Jev's poster will remain in the restaurant is still to be seen, but his point was made loud and clear. They saw a blank wall in June and decided it was the flawless place to put a picture of themselves.

But Bobbit has filed a lawsuit against the couple, alleging that they engaged in fraud and had misspent the funds. Bobbitt, whose attorney says he is entering a drug addiction program, will also be deposed on Monday. "GoFundMe's goal has always been to ensure Johnny gets support he deserves", a statement from GoFundMe read. But McClure and D'Amico have since reportedly told attorneys that all the funds are gone.

In court Wednesday, Badway said Bobbitt has gotten $200,000, but Bobbitt's lawyer said he had received about $75,000, including the camper as well as a 1999 Ford Ranger. It raised more than $400,000 from more than 14,000 people.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, GoFundMe and Bobbitt's lawyer announced Thursday night that he will receive an amount equal to the balance of the funds he did not get from the online fund-raiser set up for him in November.

Reached for comment Thursday morning, the couple's attorney, Ernest Badway, told CNN, "We have no comment".

The company assured customers that although Bobbitt's case in unusual, they have "taken steps to prevent this extremely unique situation from occurring again". The GoFundMe cash, Bobbitt suspected, had been squandered on vacations, a luxury vehicle and more than one addiction.

The judge said that what happened to some of the funds "lacks clarity" and that she needed to hear from the couple themselves. At the request of Bobbitt's attorney, the judge has shut the suit down until at least December.

During an appearance on NBC's "Megyn Kelly Today" show, D'Amico told Kelly there was well over $150,000 left of the donations.
