KFDM on scene as federal agents raid homes of BISD Purchasing Director Naomi Lawrence-Lee and former WB Booster Club president Bo Kelley
BEAUMONT - KFDM News has learned F.B.I. agents are raiding the homes of BISD Purchasing Director Naomi Lawrence-Lee and former West Brook booster club president William Bo Kelley, Jr. We've learned no other law enforcement actions are planned Friday in connection with the BISD investigation.
Stay with KFDM and kfdm.com for updates.
"There is a law enforcement action taking place Friday linked to the BISD investigation," Davilyn Walston, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office told KFDM News. She wouldn't specify the target but KFDM has learned the actions are taking place at Lee's home and Kelley's home.
KFDM reporter Justin Hinton reports that Lee was in her home during the raid and an agent inside the home answered the door when we knocked and told us she was cooperating but he wouldn't let her speak with us.
The superintendent placed Lee on paid administrative leave in January pending the outcome of an internal investigation. A KFDM investigation uncovered questions about the amount of money Lee received in extra-duty pay but we don't know if that has anything to do with Friday's raid.
Kelley was removed as West Brook booster club president in February while the club investigated what it said was about $30,000 that was unaccounted for. We reported that Kelley gave the club a check for about that amount shortly after he was removed.
