Ralenkotter sought police substation funds while police investigated LVCVA

Former LVCVA boss Rossi Ralenkotter pushed for funds for a police substation expansion while police investigated his agency. He set up a meeting with Sheriff Joe Lombardo to discuss the project
after he became a target of the investigation. Experts say the meeting raises potential conflict of interest concerns for Lombardo, who won’t comment. The investigation is looking into $50,000 in missing Southwest Airlines gift cards. Ralenkotter used $17,000 in gift cards for personal travel. He repaid the money and denies wrongdoing.
