CALDWELL — The FBI investigation into the Caldwell Police Department (CPD) is ongoing after a federal jury convicted former CPD Lieutenant Joseph Hoadley on three felony counts.Hoadley was found guilty of destruction, alteration or falsification of records in federal investigations; tampering with a witness by harassment; and tampering with documents.No current officers — or department employees — are targets of the investigation, according to District of Idaho U.S. Attorney Josh Hurwit. '[The Joseph Hoadley trial] showed the badge is not a shield from accountability, and that is how it should be,' Hurwit said.
