April 16-- The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is investigating allegations of criminal activity by unnamed city officials in Uvalda.
Special Agent in Charge Todd Lowery says his office is leading an investigation involving drugs in cooperation with the Uvalda Police Department, the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office and the Oconee Circuit District Attorney. Uvalda Mayor Paul Bridges says he's been told not to comment on the allegations by investigators.
In another case, Lowery says the city council has asked the GBI to investigate reports of missing money. The agent says he's asked the council to conduct an audit and if it turns up any irregularities, the GBI will investigate further. The council has scheduled an audit Wednesday and Thursday by Christian, Kelly and Thigpen Certified Public Accountants of Dublin.
