PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - State police looking at an allegation of ballot tampering against state Rep. Scott Slater have determined no crime was committed.

They are, however, still looking at ballot tampering allegations at two Providence locations, including one involving two Providence police officers supporting independent mayoral candidate Buddy Cianci.

State police Col. Steven O’Donnell says the ballot in question involving Slater arrived at the Board of Elections.

The Democrat was videotaped by a Cianci supporter outside a senior housing complex with paper in his hand that the man claimed was a ballot. Slater’s lawyer, Bill Dimitri, says it wasn’t a ballot.

Police are investigating allegations that two men took a woman’s blank ballot at another senior housing complex, and allegations that two officers tried to take a blank ballot at a homeless shelter.
