Benton County Prosecuting Attorney: Investigating Cave Springs City Government

FOX24

According to Benton County Prosecuting Attorney, Nathan Smith, the city of Cave Springs is under investigation.

As to who’s being investigated specifically Smith couldn’t say.

Mayor Travis Lee told us he is at least one of the people being investigated.

In a statement from the prosecuting attorney’s office, Smith said, ” Numerous citizens have contacted my office making various allegations of criminal wrongdoing by elected officials and city employees of cave springs.”

Mayor Lee couldn’t go into the details of the investigation but he did say there are accusations he stole and tapped people’s phones.

Mayor Lee said, “It’s ludicrous, it’s asinine, there’s no truth to anything of it. I have 100 % surety that once the facts come out it will be great.”

Again, the prosecuting attorney told us they hope to have this investigation complete as soon as possible.

We are of course going to continue following this story and bring you and additional information as soon as it’s made available.
