CAPE CORAL, Fla.- The FBI spent the day meeting with a Cape Coral City Councilman.

Councilman Chris Chulakes-Leetz said he was interviewed by the FBI this morning at City Hall, in regards to a land purchase the City made back in 2012. 

City Council approved city staff taking part in a county auction for 491 parcels of land in Cape Coral. The properties spanned 652 acres across the northwest section of the city. Cape Coral city officials bid $13,080,100 to beat the next highest bid of $10 million.

At the time, WINK News was told the land would be useful in the upcoming Utilities Expansion Project. Now, WINK News is working to find out exactly why the FBI is interested in the deal.

Councilman Chulakes-Leetz said he cannot comment.
