Agents are loading a whole truck with items and boxes as many reporters watch outside from the street.
ABC 27’s Dave Marcheskie is reporting that the Attorney General’s office is investigating whether the ex-Mayor purchased museum artifacts with taxpayer money.

Suffice to say, stay tuned for further developments…
Update: Julianne Mattera of the Patriot-News is reporting that a witness before a grand jury was questioned about reimbursements for ex-Mayor Reed’s purchases of artifacts.
Update 2: The Attorney General’s office is not commenting on the search, which is the official response whenever a grand jury investigation is under way.
