INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Feb. 9, 2o14) — The Marion County Prosecutor tells FOX59 News he thinks the Mayor’s office went too far following our stories on the serving of a grand jury search warrant with political overtones.

Terry Curry also says he’s told top police officials what the probe is about.

FOX59 was the first to report that Marion County grand jury investigators searched the home of community activist Byron Alston on the city’s north side.

Alston told us detectives took his computer and financial records and asked him if a Republican ever offered him a large sum of money.

Mayor Ballard’s spokesman issued a statement criticizing what he called ‘the prosecutor’s attempt to politicize the investigation.’

Now, Curry, a Democrat is firing back.

“We thought the statement was over the top and as I’ve also shared with the Mayor’s office after the fact, I specifically discussed the circumstances of this particular matter with Chief Hite and Director Riggs,” Prosecutor Terry Curry said. “So, the suggestion that it was politically motivated is just dead wrong.”
