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

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.
