Pitkin County: Is there an FBI probe?

Staff report
The Aspen Times
Aspen, CO, Colorado

ASPEN – Jon Peacock, Pitkin County manager, was directed Tuesday to ask if the county Sheriff’s Office is the target of an FBI investigation.

County Commissioner Michael Owsley suggested the county make the inquiry of the federal agency after the Aspen Daily News reported that individuals have been questioned about drug activity or an abuse of power within the department.

“I think Pitkin County should know whether Pitkin County is being investigated by the FBI,” Owsley said. “The Sheriff’s Office is part of Pitkin County, so therefore Pitkin County is being investigated.”

Other commissioners concurred.

“That is certainly a request we can make,” Peacock said.
