ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The New York State Polices Special Investigations Unit conducted a search at the headquarters of the New York State Troopers Police Benevolent Association.
A reason for the raid has not been revealed, but things between the PBA and the state have been heating up since the former longtime president, Thomas Mungeer, took a leave of absence.
The leave started in October and Mungeer is still currently on leave. Both NYSP and the PBA confirmed with NEWS10 the investigation is still ongoing.
An attorney for the NYSTPBA issued the following statement:
“I can confirm that the Special Investigations Unit of the New York State Police executed a search warrant at PBA headquarters today. This is part of an ongoing investigation, and we have been fully cooperating with the investigators for the last several months. The current leadership team of the PBA is fully committed to the integrity of the organization and we welcome the Special Investigations Unit’s assistance in uncovering past wrongdoing by individuals that are no longer part of the PBA leadership.”
