PITTSBURGH – Mayor Luke Ravenstahl fired Police Chief Nate Harper yesterday after an FBI raid on records of the Greater Pittsburgh Police FCU last week turned up financial improprieties in the police department’s accounts.

Investigators discovered that thousands of dollars from several police credit union accounts opened by the chief’s office paid for hotel rooms, food and trips.  Money from the accounts might also have paid for condominium rentals for the chief and others during the Group of 20 economic summit in 2009.
