7-22-05 - Atoka County prosecutors say the FBI is investigating allegations a Texas construction company forged surety bonds and stole county money.
Weatherford, Texas-based B-3 Detention Solutions has been building a new Atoka County jail in Atoka. Surety bonds are like insurance policies for construction companies and are required.
Money to pay for the bonds is included in the company's $2 million-dollar contract. Atoka County District Attorney Mark Campbell says the company forged the bonds and kept the money.
Officials say there are no problems with construction of the jail, but the investigation into B-3 Detention caused a two-month delay.
The jail is to hold 75 inmates and open next February.
