Investigator admits to ordering drinks in Morgan Hill affair scandal

A private investigator hired by a local attorney embroiled in a
land use issue, admitted he ordered two cups of hot chocolate that
were delivered to City Manager Ed Tewes’ Huntington Beach hotel
room.
Morgan Hill – A private investigator hired by a local attorney embroiled in a land use issue, admitted he ordered two cups of hot chocolate that were delivered to City Manager Ed Tewes’ Huntington Beach hotel room.

Brian Carey, the Santa Cruz man hired by Bruce Tichinin, said in a telephone interview last week that he ordered the room service from a telephone near the elevators outside the city manager’s room.

Carey denies the implication that he was trying to “trap” Tewes.

Tichinin claimed recently that he and business partner, Howard Vierra, hired Carey to find proof that Tewes and City Attorney Helene Leichter were having an affair. Both have denied an affair took place.

Tichinin said proving the affair would show Tewes could have influenced Leichter’s decision to deny a housing development he was a partner in.

After Tewes found the coffee he told city officials who ordered an investigation that has cost the city about $100,000, and could go higher.

To date, city staff has been authorized to pay about $56,000 in bills related to the investigation.
