State police search home of Macomb County prosecutor

By  | 

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) - (5/14/19) - State police are searching the home of the Macomb County prosecutor in an investigation of how his office spent money.

The search was confirmed Tuesday by Lt. Darren Green. TV station WXYZ posted a photo of police in Eric Smith's driveway in Macomb Township.

There was no immediate comment from Smith.

Many county officials have raised questions about how he's spent thousands of dollars from forfeited assets tied to alleged crimes. Records show the money has been used to support certain charities and to pay for credit card bills and other expenses.

Smith insists he has nothing to hide. The search at his home occurred a month after police searched his office in Mount Clemens.
