State raids Alcorn County board of supervisors office building

CORINTH, Miss. — The Mississippi State Auditor’s office combed through files seized in Alcorn County.

WREG obtained exclusive video of agents inside the Alcorn County Board of Supervisors office building Tuesday.

They went through cabinets, yanked files and even sat down while they sorted through stacks upon stacks of paperwork.

The auditor’s office would not tell us what they were looking for, and who they were after.

Board president Lowell Hinton said investigators looked closely at computers and in file cabinets for several hours.

They even had to shut down the office.

Hinton called their visit unexpected, and he didn’t know what they could be possibly looking for.

This is the same team of investigators who cracked down on city corruption in Southaven.

For three years, they built a case against former Mayor Greg Davis.

Last month, Davis was convicted of embezzlement and fraud.

“This just proves our auditors, our investigators, our law enforcement division do a tremendous job of putting together a case. The facts are there. Facts are a stubborn thing,” said State Auditor Stacey Pickering in May 2014.

Pickering told WREG time and time again, he will hold elected officials accountable.

The question now is who are they investigating in Alcorn County?

WREG is continuing to follow this story.

  • Disappointed in Memphis

    The state of Tennessee would investigate and rid the corruption in Memphis! I’m sure there is enough in Memphis to keep TN state auditors busy for a couple of years.

      Very well said, I have suggested the same thing several times, I think the TBI may be already investigating already.
