(Las Vegas, NV) — Two former officials with the Southern Nevada Water Authority are being held in an alleged bribery and money laundering scheme. Prosecutors claim Michael Johnson and Alan Coache were paid more than one-point-three-million dollars to help a landowner sell water permits to the Southern Nevada Water Authority for over eight-million dollars. The investigation is continuing.

Both men are scheduled to make court appearances this week. Coache was a state water engineer and Johnson had been chief hydrologist for the Virgin Valley Water District.
