CENTREVILLE, Ill. (AP) - The mayor of Centreville says the assistant police chief is on administrative leave with pay because he is under federal investigation.

Assistant Police Chief Corey Allen told the Belleville News-Democrat (http://bit.ly/U33WdI ) that he hasn’t been arrested. He declined any other comment.

Centreville Mayor Marius Jackson released a statement Friday saying Allen had been put on administrative leave “to ensure a thorough and complete investigation … without the perception of influence.”

The 31-year-old Allen is former chief of the Alorton Police Department.

The newspaper says the U.S. Attorney’s Office wouldn’t comment on whether federal investigators are actively investigating Allen.
