DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - Authorities have searched the home of the former Morgan County Jail warden, who is under investigation for computer tampering that authorities say could include sharing government-sensitive information with an outside source.

Decatur Daily (https://bit.ly/2dtsAte ) reports that the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office seized at least 27 items, including computers and flash drives, from Leon Bradley’s home on Oct. 4. Bradley has not been charged with a crime.

Sheriff Ana Franklin said Thursday that the sheriff’s office produced probable cause that Bradley had been involved in computer tampering. According to the search warrant affidavit, Bradley had sent sensitive information to his personal email account and then provided that information to “an outside non-law enforcement source.”

Bradley was fired on Oct. 14. The newspaper quoted Bradley as saying he did not want to comment.
