TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Pima County Sheriff Chris Nanos is firing back at the FBI for investigating the sheriff's department over spending.

This comes after an article published by the Arizona Daily Star says the department spent funds seized in drug investigations on a cafe for employees at the sheriff's department headquarters.

"Am I upset at the FBI? Absolutely. They get by with saying 'no comment.' Who does that in todays world?" said Sheriff Nanos in a sit down interview with KGUN 9 On Your Side. 

Nanos say he just wanted to get his employees a cheap, decent meal. 

"To heck with this preliminary investigation. Why are you doing a preliminary investigation," said Nanos.

Sheriff Nanos says that if the FBI does find anything, his department is willing to cooperate.
