DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

There is new information in the investigation of DeKalb County CEO Burrell Ellis.

Ellis announced Thursday he has hired an attorney, adding that while he has dealt in good faith with the DeKalb County district attorney and grand jury, he does not think he's been treated the same way.

As an example, he cited investigators searching his house while he testified before the grand jury.

Investigators are looking for information about campaign contributions Ellis received from vendors who have or are doing business with the county.
