Bristol, Va. -

     The Bristol Virginia Utilities Authority is now under investigation by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

     Here's what we can tell you tonight.

     Commonwealth's Attorney, Nicole Price tells News Five she was contacted by an individual within BVU who gave her credible information about suspicious financial activities. She says she then contacted the Sheriff's Office and started a criminal investigation.

     When we asked Price if the investigation was related to former CEO Wes Rosenbalm, she said the investigation is not focusing on any particular person.

     We spoke with BVU interim CEO Mike Bundy who says it would be inappropriate to comment on an active investigation.
