EPHRAIM—The FBI has closed its review of matters relative to the Ephraim Police Department and Chief Ron Rasmussen, finding no basis for a federal criminal investigation.

On Wednesday, Aug. 23, the FBI’s Salt Lake City office released a brief statement to that effect.

The FBI provided no other information.

Two days later, Ephraim City gave a statement to the Messenger.

“We appreciate the FBI’s review of the investigation,” said Ephraim City Manager Brant Hanson. “We always welcome a more picture of what was going on. [We are] relieved that it was cleared.”
