BOLIVIA, N.C. (AP) -- Brunswick County Sheriff Ronald Hewett has been ordered to testify before a federal grand jury in Raleigh this month.
Hewett says subpoenas also have been issued by the US Attorney's Office for members of the sheriff's office and people who worked on Hewett's re-election campaign.
Hewett says he doesn't know the focus of the investigation and hasn't been accused of any wrongdoing.
County Attorney Huey Marshall says he also received a request from the US Attorney's Office for timecards, finance records and employment records pertaining to the sheriff's office that cover "a period of years."
U-S Attorney's spokeswoman Robin Cier says she can't confirm or deny an investigation.
