NYC Housing Department Corruption Probe Widens
FBI agents recently arrested five more people in a widening probe of corruption allegations involving New York City government housing preservation officials. One city official and a former city employee were among those arrested on a variety of corruption charges.
The five will be arraigned in Brooklyn federal court. The most recent arrests mark the expansion of an ongoing probe by the FBI and prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney's Office's anti-corruption squad in Brooklyn into wrongdoing at New York City's Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).
