HARRISBURG -- Following allegations in 2013 of bid-rigging and bribery, the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission has named a new inspector general, the agency announced today.

Ray Morrow, of Washington County, a 20-year FBI veteran, will work with Pennsylvania State Police and be responsible for examining reports of theft, fraud and waste at the Turnpike, according to a statement from the agency.

Mr. Morrow was an FBI undercover agent, white-collar crime supervisor and special agent-in-charge of the bureau’s Pittsburgh office. He also worked in the private sector conducting corporate investigations.

He will be the second person to hold the inspector general post at the commission, an agency spokeswoman said.

In March, charges were filed against former top Turnpike officials and others, accusing them of crimes related to the procurement process that prosecutors said inflated costs and steered contributions to politicians.
