We are pressing for answers after a late night raid Wednesday at the New Mexico Finance Authority in Santa Fe.
Our cameras were there late Wednesday as investigators brought out box after box from the agency's headquarters in Santa Fe.
We saw agents with the securities division taking out boxes of financial documents and reports.
Last month, our 4 On Your Side team uncovered a fraudulent audit issued by the authority.
It affects New Mexicans because that audit is what Wall Street uses to determine New Mexico's credit rating.
The former official responsible for the audit, Greg Campbell, told KOB that while the audit may have been wrong, he had no criminal intent in submitting it.
On Thursday, New Mexico Regulation and Licensing Department Superintendent J. Dee Dennis Jr. issued this statement regarding the search warrant:
“This search warrant is a legal action to preserve evidence that might be needed down the road in our investigation. This is not a reflection of any lack of cooperation by NMFA or delivery of items requested by our Securities Division. NMFA has been cooperating with our investigation,” said Supt. Dennis.
"The Department has no further comment on this search warrant as this is an going investigation."
