When Planners Go Bad

Ontario, CA police caught a planner accepting bribes. Now it looks more like a pervasive pattern of corruption.

"When police caught a city building planner allegedly accepting bribes from a construction company, then arrested him at his desk in City Hall, investigators initially believed that they had merely rooted out a rogue employee bent on making a quick buck. Now they suspect--or fear--that they may have stumbled on a more pervasive pattern of corruption. Although they have little direct evidence, detectives have learned that, according to some in the region's thriving development community, bribery and kickbacks are considered a part of doing business in Ontario."
