23-year-old Paul, who became famous with his 25-year-old brother Logan Paul in the now-defunct Vine video app before switching to YouTube, has been involved in a number of controversies and violations of the law in recent years.
In June, Paul was charged with two crimes – criminal offenses and unlawful assembly – after video footage of him being found in an Arizona mall while it was being looted.
The police made an official statement to the public, receiving "hundreds of tips" claiming Paul was "a participant in the uprising."
Paul later tried to distance himself from the situation by declaring that he was in no way involved in looting or vandalism.
The FBI said there were no plans to arrest Wednesday's search, but it is unclear why heavily armed units are required for the operation

The influencer also got a backlash last month for overtly violating social distancing guidelines when COVID 19 cases surfaced in California by throwing a massive party into the villa.
The Mayor of Calabasas, Alicia Weintraub, expressed "outrage" at the "outrageous gathering", in which dozens of people without a mask drank and danced.
Paul announced to insiders last week that he would continue to do what he wanted.
Shortly after the party, videos appeared on social media in which the night owls showed no concern about social distance or wearing protective masks.

The Mayor of Calabasas, Alicia Weintraub, was outraged after hearing about the party and says she is reviewing "all options" for punishment for Paul.
Paul told insiders that he had spoken to the mayor and "everything is cool" even though he didn't go into what she said.
Meanwhile, the mayor said she hadn't spoken to Paul at all and was only a representative of YouTubers. She said that possible fines would be problematic in the future and that the sheriff department would intervene.
But Paul did not say that this would end his wild beating and insisted that he was not sure how to act.
"I don't know what to make of it, to be honest. I don't think anyone really does, ”he said. “Nobody has answers, our leadership fails us and everyone just doesn't know what to do.
"But I personally am not the type who sits around and does not live my life," he added.
Paul's party on July 16 was held despite California Governor Gavin Newsom's desperate request that people beware of the virus.
