The FBI has been investigating Muncie, Indiana, officials since at least April over allegations of misusing money and other misconduct.

The Star Press reports that agents have conducted interviews and subpoenaed hundreds of pages of documents. 

Among the issues is asbestos removal no-bid contracts that were awarded to companies owned by Muncie Building Commissioner Craig Nichols. Those companies received hundreds of thousands of dollars in contracts from the city.

Other allegations were raised by a fired city government employee, who also has come under suspicion.

The FBI has declined to discuss the investigation, so political observers have been speculating. Some believe between one and 30 people could be indicted.
