SUTTONS BAY, Mich. (AP) — A sheriff says hazardous materials were destroyed last week during a search of properties in northern Michigan's Leelanau County.
Sheriff Mike Borkovich declined to reveal the specific materials Friday, saying he must respect the FBI's investigation. He told The Associated Press that authorities went to a remote location to destroy what was deemed to be volatile or dangerous. The FBI won't comment.
Searches were conducted a week ago in Suttons Bay and in Leland Township. Agents also searched two homes in Houston and a condominium in Bryan, Texas. The properties in Michigan and Texas are owned in part by a Houston art appraiser.
Borkovich says the route of a Suttons Bay homecoming parade was changed to avoid any conflict with the search.
