Federal agents were also inside the Pure Nightclub inside Caesars Palace.
Eyewitness News has learned that federal agents have been inside Pure Nightclub at Caesars Palace all day. We have been told by IRS agents here at the headquarters of Pure Nightclub that they are conducting official business.
A little earlier Wednesday, Eyewitness News was on the scene as agents from both the IRS and the U.S. Treasury Department were inside the offices. Again all they would say is that it is "official business" that brought the agents here.
They do hope to be finished with their work there by the end of the night.
Federal agents were also inside the Pure Nightclub inside Caesars Palace. We are also told by sources that agents showed up at the club at about 7 a.m. with a warrant and that this may be linked to tax evasion.
Channel 8 has also been receiving calls saying employees of the club are being told not to come to work Wednesday night.
Pure was set to host the after-party for Bette Midler after her first show Wednesday night at the Colosseum at Caesars.
Eyewitness News was told though that the VIP red carpet event will not be affected.
We did receive a statement from Pure Management Group. They tell us they are fully cooperating with the IRS investigation and look forward to a quick and satisfactory resolution.
They say until that time they will have no further comment about Wednesday's events. A spokesperson for the IRS says they might release more details about this case later Wednesday night. Of course, we will bring you that information as it becomes available.
