NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) - Virginia State Police have launched an investigation
into past business practices at the Newport News/Williamsburg International
Airport, after a state audit found widespread issues with airport spending.
The Daily Press reports agency spokeswoman Corinne N. Geller says Virginia
State Police are looking for evidence of a violation of state law. Agents with
the State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the IRS's criminal
investigation division and the U.S. Department of Transportation's Office of
Inspector General interviewed a series of employees Tuesday.
Airport Acting Executive Director Sandy Wanner says he set up the interviews
for the agents but was not told what they concerned.
A Virginia Department of Transportation audit said the airport's spending
issues included an improper loan guarantee to a startup airline that cost $4.5
million in taxpayer money.
