NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Louisiana State Police Col. Mike Edmonson says his investigators have found no evidence at this time that the Saints or general manager Mickey Loomis rigged Superdome wiring so opposing coaches’ radio communications could be intercepted.

Edmonson says state police investigators have run an extensive probe in conjunction with the FBI since the eavesdropping allegations surfaced in news reports in April. He says that after conducting numerous interviews, “there is no evidence that state laws have been violated.”

Edmonson says he cannot comment on the status of related federal probes. He also says State Police will reopen their investigations if new allegations surface.

Loomis and the Saints have emphatically denied the allegations, and the Saints have hired the firm of former FBI director Louis Freeh to do its own investigation.
