From Brian Lockhart, CT Post:
Police and city officials are investigating allegations that employees of the Public Facilities Department have been misappropriating cash from the sale of scrap metal–charges similar to those probed in Stamford’s vehicle maintenance department eight years ago.
Police Chief Armando Perez said Thursday that at the request of City Council members, his department opened a case regarding the scrap metal claim and other alleged improprieties outlined in an anonymous letter.

City Attorney R. Christopher Meyer said his office knew of the letter and is taking it seriously, though he declined to go into further detail.
