Investigators are going over millions of documents found in a Queens warehouse that may shed light on Bernard Madoff’s alleged Ponzi scheme, the New York Daily News reports. The warehouse was used to store records from Madoff Investment Securities, spanning the firm’s decades-long history.

Madoff himself is apparently chafing at the confines of his house arrest, sources tell the Post; “I’m a prisoner in my own house! I’m stuck here all day,” he reportedly complained. The terms of Madoff’s bail have been tightened since he and his wife mailed $1 million in jewelry to their sons and associates. Federal authorities have moved to install wiretaps to monitor phone and internet communications from Madoff’s $7 million Park Avenue home. (More Bernard Madoff stories.)
