Brendan J. Lyons reports in the Times Union that the union for New York State Troopers had officials' phones and computers seized by State Police Special Investigations Unit investigators last week. The mobile phone of the former president of the New York State Troopers Police Benevolent Association was seized and search warrants were executed at the union's Albany headquarters and the office of a related charity. The financial crimes unit is examining spending, expenses, and compensation of numerous current and former PBA officials with allegations of widespread policy violations, including undisclosed conflicts of interest. The story says there was a mutiny on the union's board of directors, with some members from western New York examining the union's finances. Read more about this story in the Times Union.
