‘No Evidence’ Found By Louisiana State Police Concerning Wiretapping Allegations Against New Orleans Saints GM Mickey Loomis
Louisiana State Police say they can't find any evidence against New Orleans Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis and the Saints concerning wiretapping allegations.
The allegations contained "sources familiar with Saints game-day operations" that accuded Loomis of using an electronic device in his suite at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to spy on opposing coaches between the 2002 to 2004 seasons.
The investigation began in April after ESPN put out the anonymously sourced report against Loomis. State Police Superintendent Colonel Mike Edmonson says:
This has been an intensive investigation, and after numerous interviews we have determined that there is no evidence that state laws have been violated. I would caution that we are not in a position to affirm or comment on the status or existence of any federal investigation. Today’s release pertains only to the State Police inquiry.
The State Police findings were disclosed today after Colonel Edmonson met with Saints owner Tom Benson.
