YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – The Auditor of State’s Office searched four locations, including the home owned by Youngstown’s finance director.

As David Bozanich was leading a session of the city’s Board of Control Thursday morning, agents with the Ohio Auditor of State were searching two homes Bozanich has ties to – one on Devonshire Drive where Bozanich lives and another a few miles away on Walnut Drive where a relative resides.

Investigators also searched the home and office of local attorney Stephen Garea.

Investigators would not say what led to the searches, only saying they’re part of an ongoing investigation.

Recently, investigators in the auditor’s office served a search warrant at the home of Dominic Marchionda, CEO of NYO Property Group. Investigators won’t say whether the searches are connected.

Agents with the Auditor’s Office are being assisted by Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office, Bureau of Criminal Investigation and agents with Ohio Attorney General’s Office.

Calls placed to both Bozanich and Garea were not returned.
