Bonnie Sweeten returns to Pennsylvania from Florida and is taken to her arraignment where $1-million bail was set on May 29, 2009. She was arrested after falsely telling police she and her daughter were kidnapped in Bucks County.

Action News has learned that federal authorities have now plunged into the Bonnie Sweeten saga.

Sources tell Action News that FBI agents based in Fort Washington converged on the Sweeten home early Friday afternoon to execute search warrants.

Agents took away paperwork from the home in an ongoing investigation into missing money that Sweeten allegedly took from former clients of a law firm where she worked.

Details of the probe have been sealed in federal court, but today's actions now show Sweeten under investigation by local and federal agencies.

Sweeten waived her formal arraignment set for Friday. a trial date of August 24 was set.

It has also been confirmed her husband filed for divorce this week in Bucks County.
