State prosecutor executes search warrant at Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office
Mosby says employee is the target
Investigators with the Office of the State Prosecutor executed a search warrant at the Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office on Tuesday morning, according to the city prosecutor’s office and two sources with knowledge of the circumstances.
The State’s Attorney’s Office confirmed the investigation Tuesday afternoon in an emailed statement.
“Today we learned that the Office of the State Prosecutor has opened an investigation related to an employee of the State’s Attorney’s Office. We are fully cooperating with the Office of the State Prosecutor,” said Zy Richardson, a spokeswoman with the State’s Attorney’s Office. “This is an open and pending investigation and we cannot comment any further.”
The target of the investigation was not identified, but the search warrant is not related to the federal probe of State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and her husband, City Council President Nick Mosby, according to Richardson’s emailed statement. The FBI did not take part in Tuesday’s action, a spokeswoman said.
Investigators were instead accompanied by members of the Maryland State Police.
State prosecutor Charlton Howard declined comment, citing his office’s policy on not confirming or denying investigations.
