FIRST ON 3: NHSO closes investigation into Berger leak


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The New Hanover County Sheriff's Office has closed its investigation Commissioner Brian Berger's claim that someone in county government may have broken the law by leaking information to the press.

In a statement, a Sheriff's Office spokesman said there was insufficient evidence to substantiate charges against anyone.

Berger claimed someone within county government illegally released private information in tipping off the StarNews that the county had received a letter regarding unemployment benefits Berger received from Washington, DC.
