MANALAPAN - A day after federal agents arrested Eli Weinstein at his Lakewood home on suspicion he was running a multimillion-dollar Ponzi scheme, agents have turned their attention towards locating suspected accomplice, Vladimir Siforov.

Agents raided Siforov?s Manalapan home on Summer Drive looking for him, but say they only found his wife, who told agents that he is in Moscow.

Officials say that they have no idea if Siferov will return the U.S. to face charges alongside Weinstein.

Weinstein is expected to go before a judge tomorrow for a bail hearing and prosecutors say that he is a major flight risk.
