Investigation Underway Into DOH Purchases

Federal investigators are looking into a contract between an Ohio supplier and a West Virginia Division of Highways equipment office. FBI agents and West Virginia State Police troopers seized records and documents from a DOH facility in Buckhannon on Wednesday. The company has a state contract to supply parts for DOH mowers. State records show DOH employees are allowed to use state purchasing cards to buy MoTrim parts. No arrests, and the agency is cooperating in the investigation.
