Investigators wants access to 2 key accounts at the Miss. marine resources agency

The state auditor’s office has served a subpoena for access to two key Mississippi Department of Marine Resources’ financial accounts. That’s according to a published report.

Assistant Attorney General Sandy Chesnut tells The Sun Herald (http://bit.ly/WItUn4 ) that the auditor wants record from an account that holds disaster-relief money and from the Rigs to Reefs account.

The Sun Herald says it was denied access to the accounts by Chesnut, who said the documents had been subpoenaed and were now the subject of a criminal investigation.
