— The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into charges that a former State Board of Transportation member was involved in an improper land deal.

Charlie Grady is linked to a land purchase along the planned Outer Loop in Northern Wake County. Investigators want to know if Grady used his influence to make sure the state bought the land and, if so, if he collected a commission on the sale.
