Another Cuyahoga County official indicted
U.S. Attorney's office continues to investigate corruption
by WKSU's GRANT ENGLE

In The Region:

A former member of the Cleveland-Cuyahoga Port Authority has been indicted in the ongoing county corruption investigation.

The FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s office in Cleveland say 58-year old Robert Peto of Gates Mills allegedly took bribes including home improvements, a price break on a vehicle and other entertainment from 2004-2007.

Peto was arrested Thursday morning, and is expected to have a hearing Thursday afternoon to set his bond and future court appearance.

U.S. Attorney’s Office Northern District of Ohio spokesman Michael Tobin said the indictment is another sign that law enforcement is tracking corrupt public officials.

“I think anyone who has been paying attention to this has seen that the U.S. Attorney’s office, the FBI and IRS follow the leads wherever they take them and fully investigate these matters and will continue to do so.”

The charges against Peto come on the heels of Tuesday’s indictment of Rhode Island investment broker Nicholas DelBrocco – who has been accused of accepting and offering bribes from 2005 to 2011.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office wouldn’t say whether the two are linked, but Peto fits the description in the charges against DelBrocco.
