FBI Seizes Records from Pittsburgh Police Department, But Officials Tight-Lipped on Details

The Pittsburgh Police Department is under a cloud of suspicion after the FBI seized documents Tuesday from police headquarters, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports [1].

Police spokeswoman Diane Richard would only confirm that documents were taken FBI agents and declined to talk about specifics.

Suspicion has followed police Chief Nate Harper since a former friend was charged last year in a bribery scheme to land a contract installing radios and computers in cop cars, the Inquirer reported.

Just last week, it was reported that Harper helped create a private security consulting firm that he staffed with a civilian clerk and three city officers, the Inquirer wrote.
