SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Federal prosecutors have sued to seize seven pieces of San Antonio real estate shown by property records to be owned by the son of a former Mexican governor accused of corruption.

The San Antonio Express-News (http://bit.ly/1mKZQUM) reports the federal lawsuit filed in San Antonio on Tuesday seeks the forfeiture of land the legal complaints say was bought with laundered money. Those properties include houses, a commercial lot and undeveloped land.

The Express-News reports county land records show the real estate is owned by Luis Armando Reynoso Lopez, son of former Aguascalientes state Gov. Luis Armando Reynoso Femat. The ex-governor is fighting corruption charges in Mexico.

The Associated Press could find no U.S. telephone listed for either Reynoso. The Express-News reports Reynoso Lopez didn’t respond to a request for comment.
