OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An audit of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation shows employees of the agency used state resources and time to raise money for two nonprofits associated with the agency - then refused to release documents to the state auditor's office.

State Auditor and Inspector Gary Jones released a special audit report Thursday that also says one of the nonprofits - the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Employee Association- spent nearly $10,000 to take 11 employees on a cruise.

The audit was requested by OSBI Director Stan Florence to examine the agency's role with both the association and the nonprofit Friends of the OSBI, Inc.

OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown - who is president of Friends of the OSBI, Inc. - said she hadn't read the audit and declined comment on it.
