The 9News Investigators have confirmed at least two different agencies are looking into spending by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (WLF). 

The state Legislative Auditor's Office and Inspector General's office have launched a joint investigation. 

A source told the Investigators that they are looking into the WLF's contracts, use of its purchasing credit cards and how a BP grant was spent. 

East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore confirmed that current WLF secretary Charlie Melancon did send a letter advising him of potential criminal wrongdoing and that the matter was under investigation.
