Federal authorities won’t be prosecuting Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office officials over extradition spending.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office was looking into allegations that the sheriff’s staff inappropriately spent public funds while extraditing criminal suspects and defendants.

The Arizona Republic says a team of federal prosecutors did an extensive review of records and determined that sheriff’s officials didn’t break any laws.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Deputy Chief Jack MacIntyre calls the feds’ decision “great news.”

U.S. Attorney for Arizona Dennis Burke says federal prosecutors continue to investigate other financial matters referred to him by county officials and “numerous other allegations of criminal conduct that have arisen” regarding the sheriff’s office.

Burke says the county Board of Supervisors is “well advised” to review extradition procedures to ensure they’re properly managed and funded.
