From the Middletown Police Department
Yesterday, February 23, 2010 the Middletown Police Department in conjunction with the Connecticut State Fire Marshal’s office obtained an additional search warrant for the Kleen Energy Plant site. The purpose of this warrant is to allow investigators to seize and analyze evidence located during the original Administrative Cause and Origin search warrant which expired at midnight last night. Cause and origin has yet to be determined definitively. Investigators continue to work diligently yet thoroughly in this endeavor.
All of the involved agencies; local (Middletown Police, South Fire), state (Connecticut Department of Public Safety, Connecticut State Fire Marshals Office, Connecticut State Police), and federal (OSHA, CSB, Connecticut United States Attorney’s Office), continue to work in concert to complete their respective investigations.
All necessary investigative efforts at the Kleen Energy Plant site are ongoing and it is unknown when this site work will be completed.
