New York City Buildings Commissioner Erich Ulrich was reportedly questioned by the Manhattan district attorney’s office as part of a probe into illegal gambling.

A phone belonging to Ulrich, a 37-year-old ex-City Council member, was also seized as investigators served a search warrant near his Rockaway Park home, The New York Times reported Tuesday. A source told the Times that the probe involved conduct prior to his joining the Adams administration.

A call from the Daily News to Ulrich was not returned.

He has not been charged with any wrongdoing.

“Our administration has no knowledge of any type of investigation,” said Fabien Levy, a spokesman for Mayor Adams. “If an investigation were to be be conducted, we would expect any member of this administration to cooperate fully.”

This is an ongoing story and will be updated.
