DeKalb County investigators searched the home and office of county CEO Burrell Ellis on Monday morning, according to local media reports.
Three unmarked police cars were parked outside Ellis’s home in the Southland subdivision, Channel 2 said.
The search comes on the same day as Ellis testified before a special grand jury investigating county watershed operations.
The story also said it is not immediately clear whether the search was part of the investigation into the watershed department's bidding process.
The Southland subdivision is in unincorporated Stone Mountain.
Patch is awaiting a call back from Commissioner Lee May for reaction.
Ellis was scheduled to speak before the press at 12:30 p.m.
