Federal grand jury indicts W.Va. highways supervisor on charge of lying to FBI agent

A federal grand jury has indicted a state Division of Highways supervisor on a charge of lying to an FBI agent during an investigation into a DOH equipment office in Buckhannon.

U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld on Thursday announced the indictment of 48-year-old Barry D. Thompson of Mount Clare.

Thompson, who works as a supervisor at the Buckhannon office, faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.

Federal investigators have been looking into a state contract between an Ohio supplier and the DOH equipment office. FBI agents and West Virginia state troopers seized records and documents from the Buckhannon facility in August.

The DOH equipment office has about 90 workers. The office purchases trucks, bulldozers, excavators, lawn mowers and other equipment for highway garages statewide.
