Bugs found in Indy deputy chief's office

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The FBI won't say whether bugging devices reportedly found in an Indianapolis deputy police chief's office belong to the agency.

Indianapolis Fraternal Order of Police President William Owensby told The Indianapolis Star the audio and video recording devices were found in Deputy Chief William Benjamin's office late Thursdayor early Friday.

Police Chief Paul Ciesielski says he didn't put them there and didn't order anyone else to. He says the city's director of public safety didn't put the bugs there, either, and Ciesielski has ordered an internal investigation to find out who did.

FBI spokesman Drew Northern says he can't comment on whether the bugs were the FBI's. He says lots of other people use bugs, including the police internal affairs division.
