Developing: ANOTHER "Inside Job" Break In At Flint City Hall?
By Brandon Hall
For at least the second time, documents related to the Flint Water Crisis were put at risk as an intruder was spotted earlier this week at Flint City Hall.
According to Flint 25:
"The Flint Police Department is reporting it is investigating a suspected break-in at the Mayor’s Office in Flint City Hall. The incident happened Monday afternoon while Mayor Weaver and her staff were at work in the office.
An employee discovered an unfamiliar man walking down the hall of the Mayor’s executive suite, according to Flint Police Chief Tim Johnson. When asked what he was doing and how he got in, he apparently had no answers.The man was escorted from the office without further incident and staff then called police.
Upon arrival, officers found evidence of forced entry at a back door. Police are now reviewing footage from security cameras hoping to identify the suspect."
WMP reported last January about the break-in that occurred between Christmas and New Year's, and the Flint Police Chief believes that was an inside job, a targeted hit designed to steal Flint Water Crisis docs...
According to MLive:
"As of Friday, March 18, there were still no suspects in the case, and officials say it may never be known what -- other than a TV -- was taken.
But the city's new police chief Tim Johnson says it's too suspicious that there was a break-in where important documents were kept, just as investigations began heating up and decision makers were beginning to be held accountable.
"It was definitely an inside job. The power cord (to the TV) wasn't even taken. The average drug user knows that you'd need the power cord to be able to pawn it," Johnson said.
The office was not assigned to any city employees at the time of the break-in, city officials have said.
"It was somebody that had knowledge of those documents that really wanted to keep them out of the right hands, out of the hands of someone who was going to tell the real story of what's going on with Flint water," he said."
