Feds investigating Montgomery tuition program
A Montgomery County tuition assistance program that allowed police and other law enforcement officials to purchase sharply discounted firearms for their own use has prompted a federal investigation, a senior county official said Thursday.
“Early on we contacted federal authorities and there is now an ongoing criminal investigation related to this program,” said Timothy L. Firestine, Montgomery’s chief administrative officer.
Montgomery Police Chief J. Thomas Manger said he could not comment on whether federal authorities have contacted him regarding his officers’ involvement with the program.
