BERKELEY, S.C. (WCIV) -- Five Berkeley County sheriff's deputies recently testified before a federal grand jury, officials confirmed Wednesday.

But why they testified and what is being investigated is still unclear.

Capt. Rick Ollic of the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office, confirmed the deputies testified in late August but said the sheriff's office had no further comment.

Ollic also confirmed the deputies were issued subpoenas about a week before they testified.
