KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas Bureau of Investigation has completed its investigation into a rental property arrangement involving Kansas City, Kansas, Police Chief Terry Zeigler.

The investigation looked at Zeigler's lease with Wyandotte County to rent a taxpayer-owned home at Wyandotte County Lake Park.

More specifically, the investigation focused on whether Zeigler "double dipped" when he took time off to work on the house.

Those accusations came to light when documents obtained by the 41 Action News Investigators uncovered instances when Zeigler took paid time off from his job as chief then billed the Unified Government for work on the lake house.

“We have now completed our investigation and have presented the findings to the Wyandotte County District Attorney’s Office for review," the KBI confirmed Wednesday night via email. "That occurred late last week.”

The DA's Office is reviewing the KBI's findings.

"The office has the report," the District Attorney's Office said in an email to 41 Action News. "There is no case, per se, yet."

The 41 Action News Investigators first broke the story about the lease in question in November 2018.
