Madison County office focus of investigation
EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) _ Authorities say they have searched a Madison County office and a special prosecutor is being requested as part of an investigation of possible criminal misconduct.
The Belleville News-Democrat (http://bit.ly/1rYTNUS) reports that Edwardsville police have seized various items from the county office in southwestern Illinois. But Police Chief Jay Keeven and Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons aren’t publicly disclosing any details.
Keeven only says that he can confirm an investigation is underway.
Gibbons on Wednesday filed a court motion seeking the appointment of a special prosecutor.
