MILLINGTON, TN - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is searching the premises of Transmission Doctors, the business connected to a corruption investigation involving the city of Millington and its Mayor, Richard Hodges.
abc24.com's Marcus Holliday learned that the heavy equipment digging up the concrete at the business allowed authorities to take soil samples.
The TBI told Holliday they were taking the samples because they believe fuel tanks were illegally removed from the Transmission Doctors property. Holliday said the samples tested positive for a chemical found in gasoline.
Authorities are concerned that, though it hasn't happened yet, the contaminated soil might pollute the city's water supply.
