Mercer Co. Fire Board under review

Local - 7/4/2013 12:31 PM
PRINCETON - Officials are looking into records at the Mercer County Fire Board after an irregularity was found by a state auditor. 

State troopers executed a search warrant Wednesday morning.  Mercer County Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ash said that an investigation will see if there was any wrongdoing or if it's just bad record keeping.  Ash said the information will be handed over to the state police and auditors who will report back if there were any criminal violations.  

Officials said the board was responsible for collecting fire fees and distributing money to the volunteer departments.  

A member of the advisory board declined to comment Wednesday.
