Problems with the air system at new county crime lab

   There's an ill wind blowing at the new St. Louis County Police crime lab.  Literally.  

   St. Louis County Police Chief Tim Fitch says the new ventilation system is delivering "hurricane-like" gales and persistent dripping water that could contaminate evidence in criminal cases.  Fitch tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that that hasn't happened yet, but the potential is there.  

   This is the second controversy for ventilation system.  It was installed by SM Mechanical, a company owned by former police board chairman Gregory Sansone.  The $3.7 million sub-contract led to an FBI investigation and Sansone's resignation from the board.  

   Public works officials and the contractor both say bugs like this are normal with new construction.  The repairs are covered under warrantee.
