Police - Census

The US Census Bureau is investigating whether any laws were broken when two police officers in Saint Paul, Minnesota posed as Census workers while working a drug case. According to a police report, two officers went to the home of an alleged drug house, telling at least one person there that they were working for the Census. Later that day, they came back with a search warrant and made four arrests. Robert talks with Paul Gustafson, the Ramsey County Courts Reporter for the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
