Bernie Fine-Syracuse Scandal: Federal Authorities Search Locker At Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center

Law enforcement officials are turning up the heat in the investigation into the Bernie Fine sexual misconduct scandal that rocked Syracuse University back in November.

The longtime assistant basketball coach under Jim Boeheim was recently fired from the University in light of new information that lent credibility to molestation charges brought forth after two former ball boys, Bobby Davis and Mike Lang, came forward to accuse Fine of inappropriate sexual contact while they were minors.

After it was recently revealed that yet another victim was preparing to come forward, federal authorities arrived at the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center on the Orange campus to search one of the lockers.

NY Post has more:

The official confirmed the search at the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center happened Wednesday. The official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because it's an ongoing investigation, would not say what agents sought or what they recovered from the locker.

Fine's office on campus was searched Tuesday morning, and his suburban home was searched last Friday. The U.S. Attorney's office in northern New York, which is leading the investigation, has not said what it sought or found.
