Officials used hand tools and diggers to dig at the Orange County properties.
Sources tell CBS the digging is part of an investigation into the Gambino family.
"Could be guns, could be bodies, could be drugs," retired NYPD detective Tom Howell told CBS. "Who knows what's in there, if there's anything?"
Law enforcement would only say they were digging for "contraband."
Agents were investigating at 117 Hamptonburgh Road in Campbell Hall and 51 Hampton Road in Goshen. It's believed the same person owns both properties.
