RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - New information on the investigation into a deal for the City of Richmond to buy new police cruisers.
NBC12 has obtained documents and emails from the city that show a car dealership in Prince George county may have blown the whistle.
Back in 2007, Richmond bought 40 new cruisers from Sheehy Ford for just under a $1 million.
The city auditor has ruled, that deal broke the rules and that other ford dealerships in the Richmond area were not treated fairly.
We've learned tonight that Crossroad's Ford filed a complaint about the bidding process. But the city still awarded the contract to Sheehy.
The city is investigating and is expected to release a report next week. Commonwealth's Attorney Michael Herring is deciding whether or not to file criminal charges.
