BATON ROUGE - The corruption trial of former St. Gabriel Mayor George Grace starts back up today as the trial goes into its fourth week.

Prosecution brought Shreveport Mayor Cedric B. Glover to the stand Thursday, testifying that Grace asked him to meet at Baton Rouge Metro Airport sometime in early 2010 to discuss Cifer 5000, a fake garbage can cleaning company.

Glover said he never took Cifer 5000 seriously and was never offered bribes, and added that if he was offered he wouldn't have accepted any.

George Grace, 68, is accused of accepting around $15,000 in bribes from FBI undercover operative, William Myles.

Five other elected officials have been convicted as a result of the investigation.
