FBI raids Detroit Public Library in fraud case

DETROIT (Det. Free Press) -- This time, it's about scamming the Detroit Public Library.

The federal government's ongoing probes into public corruption landed today on the doorsteps of the city's main library branch, where FBI agents raided the historic landmark over allegations of contract fraud.

"There may be an individual who awarded contracts for personal gain. And if that is the case, it is a total violation of the public trust," Jonathan Kinloch, president of the Detroit Library Commission, told the Free Press.

According to Kinloch, the contracts involve two technology firms that were hired for at least $2 million to update the library's computer systems. A library official allegedly had ties to at least one of the contractors, and benefited personally from the million-dollar deals, he said.
