Search for clues in Needham

NEEDHAM

Investigators plan to search the Needham offices of a private investigation firm involved in the Hewlett-Packard Co. spying scandal, California Attorney General Bill Lockyer said today.

Lockyer told The Associated Press that he is working with Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly in the investigation of Security Outsourcing Solutions, a small firm believed to have aided HP in its possibly illegal probe to root out media leaks in its ranks.

"He's assisting in getting our search warrants served on that firm so that we can fully examine their records," Lockyer said.

He said the firm's offices will likely be searched early next week, but he has not decided whether the firm broke any laws.

"I would like to see the results of the search warrant before having a settled opinion on that," Lockyer said.
