Drug probe at Alabama Statehouse kept under wraps

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Lawmakers also say they want to know why they were not informed of the incident involving maintenance worker Lorenza Hooks for years and wonder if a cover up and more people were involved.

State Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery, said he believes drugs may have been provided to others at the Statehouse.

The drugs were found in a backpack in former state Rep. Bobby
Humphryes' office in December 2006.

Hooks admitted that the backpack was his, but said the drugs and drug paraphernalia were not.

The Montgomery Advertiser reported on the events in Sunday
editions.
