Officials from the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office and Florence Township Police Department could be seen towing a BMW off of the property and removing boxes presumed to contain evidence.

Katie McClure and Mark D'Amico remained on their porch as investigators took evidence bags out of their home.

The couple is accused in court documents of witholding money intended for Bobbitt, who is a homeless veteran.

They allegedly spent money to live a lifestyle they couldn't afford, including vacations and shopping sprees.

McClure and D'Amico are scheduled to answer questions under oath on Monday for depositions at their attorney's office. Their lawyer says they plan to assert their 5th Amendment rights.

Bobbitt will also have to testify in a deposition but the date and place have not been made public as his attorney says he is in a residential drug rehab facility.

There is no word when and if there may be criminal charges.
