Interim DeKalb CEO Lee May announced Sept. 1 search warrants have been issued for emails for himself and two former employees.

Requested by a DeKalb County Police sergeant, the search warrants are for emails of May, former DeKalb County chief of staff Morris Williams and former procurement director Kelvin Walton.

The requested emails are from Dec. 13, 2010, to Dec. 31., 2011, and may prove conspiracy to defraud a state or political subdivision, and false statements, according to the warrants.

The warrants come as county officials are awaiting a report from a special investigator who described the county government as “rotten to the core.” The investigator was hired by May to uncover corruption.

“I have said from the very beginning that I expect full cooperation from all county employees as it pertains to the ongoing investigations into DeKalb County government,” May said. “I include myself in that directive, and I have ordered staff to comply completely and as rapidly as possible.

“I share the sentiments of everyone who wants to get to the bottom of corruption and wrongdoing, and these search warrants are a step in this process,” May said. “Personally, I have nothing to hide; and there will be nothing in my email to suggest I have done anything wrong.”
