A new State Police report contains potentially criminal allegations against former Superintendent Mike Edmonson relating to an investigation into a group of Troopers trip to Las Vegas, according to The Advocate. 

The report, the paper says, contains allegations against Edmonson including a claim that he deleted text messages on the eve of his retirement as the agency was investigating a group of troopers who charged taxpayers for overtime and expensive stays at the Grand Canyon and a Las Vegas casino resort as they drove to a law enforcement conference in California.

The report also concludes that Edmonson knew of the scenic detours the troopers took on their trip, even as he insisted publicly that the side trip was not approved. The Advocate also states that Edmonson had been in touch with troopers throughout the trip and received photographs of sightseeing.
