PITTSBURGH (AP) - County prosecutors have executed search warrants as part of an investigation into a state-created authority appointed to oversee Pittsburgh’s failing finances a dozen years ago.

The Allegheny County district attorney’s office said it executed search warrants Wednesday at a downtown office of the Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority for records dating back to July 2009 and for bank records involving the agency.

The authority’s board voted unanimously Friday not to renew the month-to-month contract of executive director Henry Sciortino as of May 31.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported earlier that the agency didn’t have financial records for most of its expenditures since 2010 and that Sciortino couldn’t find a record of checks written between 2004 and 2009.

Federal authorities have also said they are looking into the agency.
