More State Workers Get Federal Subpoenas

Federal investigators are still seeking answers about coastal real estate developments assembled by two brothers with ties to former North Carolina Gov. Mike Easley.

The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources confirmed Tuesday three employees were subpoenaed to appear later this week before a federal grand jury.

Six different current or former agency employees were asked to appear last month and provide documents on the same four developments put together by businessmen Gary and Randy Allen. Easley and his wife bought a lot in one of the developments.

The latest subpoenas also want to know if anyone has made payoffs to state regulators. A lawyer for Gary Allen has said nothing like that occurred.

Grand jurors have met this year seeking information on activities surrounding Easley and his associates.
