LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - The FBI is investigating allegations of criminal activity in Lubbock’s Power & Light company.

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reports Sunday (https://bit.ly/1nH8NlU) that according to emails it received through an open records request the FBI investigation began in May when the utility’s head of finances Andy Burcham approached the agency to discuss suspected criminal activity.

According to the emails, the investigation is related to work done by Colorado-based E3 Consulting.

Burcham says in an email to Electric Utility Board Chairman Greg Taylor and City Manager James Loomis that he met with FBI investigators on May 12 to “discuss the past due invoices and related information with E3 Consulting.” Burcham says he was instructed not to elaborate.

The utility has not paid more than $133,000 to E3 Consulting, citing billing irregularities.
