OKLAHOMA CITY - The Air Force and Environmental Protection Agency executed a search warrant at the offices of the private contractor responsible for numerous problems with family housing at Tinker Air Force Base, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe said Tuesday.

The warrant allowed authorities to search the Tinker offices of Balfour Beatty Communities, according to the senator.

Inhofe, R-Tulsa, said, “The warrant was related to suspected Clean Air Act violations by Balfour Beatty Communities. I thank federal law enforcement for doing their part to investigate any alleged wrongdoing, and I encourage Balfour Beatty Communities to cooperate fully with the investigation.

“While this matter is still very much under investigation, should these or any of the other ongoing federal investigations be substantiated, Balfour Beatty and those who perpetrated any wrongdoing against our military families must be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”
