BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) An FBI team is looking into possible financial irregularities at the Beaumont public school district.
Agents arrived Thursday at Beaumont Independent School District administrative offices where district spokeswoman Nakisha Myles released a statement saying investigators are looking into allegations someone had set up bogus accounts and diverted district funds. She says the district won't have any more to say until the investigation is finished.
Multiple Beaumont media reports say FBI agents also have been to the homes of the district superintendent and chief financial officer.
Beaumont-based U.S. Attorney John Bales is confirming only "the existence of a law enforcement activity involving the Beaumont Independent School District."
The federal probe comes about a week after the Texas Education Agency said it's looking into several potential concerns in the Southeast Texas district.
