RECORDS REMOVED FROM PATTON VILLAGE CITY HALL AND POLICE STATION

Late this morning members of the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office converged on Patton Village city hall and police department. They were soon joined by a Texas Ranger and members of the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement.

As officer stood outside investigators started going through records inside the offices.

Montgomery County First Assistant District Attorney Phil Grant was only able to supply limited information since this is the beginning of what could be months of investigation. Grant stated they were in the early stages of an investigation of some alleged improprieties by city officials. They executed a search warrant based on probable cause and signed by a local judge. The search warrant was for various business records for which the District Attorney’s Office will do a full and complete investigation of those business records to see if the allegations received by the District Attorney’s Office are illegal activities or just normal city business.

Grant said the only allegations that he could speak of were misuse of official funds.

Approximately three hours later investigators started loading boxes of records into a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office cargo trailer. Grant said those records will be submitted for forensic analysis and could take months to complete.
