NEW ORLEANS (AP) – State Police investigators have found no evidence that the Saints or general manager Mickey Loomis rigged Superdome wiring so opposing coaches’ radio communications could be intercepted.
“This has been an intensive investigation, and after numerous interviews we have determined that there is no evidence that state laws have been violated,” State Police Col. Mike Edmonson said Monday after meeting with Saints owner Tom Benson in New Orleans to brief him on the status of the probe.
State Police investigators have been working in conjunction with the FBI since the eavesdropping allegations surfaced in news reports in April.
Loomis and the Saints have emphatically denied the allegations.
