A federal racketeering and corruption investigation has apparently moved on to city officials in St. Gabriel.

Council members there were recently served with subpoenas to appear before a federal grand jury on September 29, according to Councilman Ralph Johnson.

Johnson said he and other members of the city council had spoken to the FBI and that while he couldn't comment about the questions he was asked, he did confirm that investigators were looking at the city's business practices and the mayor in regards to the Operation: Blighted Officials case.
