Feds step up Harrisburg probe: report

"CBS 21 News has learned that the United States Justice Department is conducting a wide-ranging criminal investigation into financial transactions during the administration of former Harrisburg Mayor Stephen Reed," WHPT-TV says here.

"Multiple sources have confirmed that a secret federal grand jury has convened in Williamsport to investigate Harrisburg's financial mess, specifically financial transactions involving current and former city officials, including former Mayor Stephen Reed.

"We also have been told that the justice department is ramping up the investigation, bringing more agents into Harrisburg. However, they are not working in the federal building. They are working off-site so they can continue their work in secret."
