EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — Illinois State Police say they’re investigating possible criminal wrongdoing by two East St. Louis officers.

State police Capt. James Morrisey tells the Belleville New-Democrat the probe began Tuesday after the agency fielded a complaint.

Morrisey and East St. Louis Police Chief Michael Floore aren’t publicly discussing the allegations.

Floore has placed the officers on administrative leave and has launched an internal investigation.

Floore says the officers are veterans of the force.

The officers’ names have not been released.
