VSP opens criminal investigation into ‘actions’ of former Middlesex County MP


MIDDLESEX COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) – Virginia State Police have said a person who previously worked as an assistant in Middlesex County is under criminal investigation.

Virginia State Police confirmed in an email Monday that the Bureau of Criminal Investigation was conducting a criminal investigation “involving the actions of a former congressman.”

The case was referred to the Chesapeake field office by the Middlesex County Sheriff’s Office, police said.

State police did not specify the nature of the “actions” or when or where they occurred. The police also did not give the identity of the former deputy.

10 On Your Side contacted state police to ask if the “actions” occurred while the person was employed by the sheriff’s office. These details were not given in the initial press release.

Police declined to say, returning a copy of the text of the original press release instead.

The original press release says the case is still under investigation at this time and no further information is available for release.
