Source: Feds seize funds in BISD investigation


Sources close to the federal investigation of the Beaumont Independent School District said Thursday that one of the employees whose home was raided withdrew $50,000 from the bank the day of the raid.

Devin McCraney is the director of finance for BISD.   Last Thursday, the same day the FBI raided the Administration Building, agents also went through his house and the house of BISD comptroller Sherika Allison.

The BISD Superintendent told reporters it's all part of an investigation into misuse of public funds.  Our sources say McCraney withdrew $50,000 that day and he told authorities it was to hire an attorney.

12News has been told that the FBI has seized the money.
