As first reported by browardbulldog.org, prosecutors and state law enforcement agents are looking into allegations against Al Rolle.

He’s accused in a plot to hide and destroy public records that were requested by an officer he fired.

Capt. Marie Kent, the former head of the department’s Internal Affairs office, and current Internal Affairs boss Detective Tony Aquino, who took over IA from Kent are also under investigation.
