The Big Spring campaign contributions investigation could wrap up soon.

The Texas Rangers have been investigating alleged illegal campaign contributions accepted by two City Council members and Mayor Tommy Duncan.

Duncan along with newly elected councilman Marcus Fernandez and Councilman Glen Carrigan have been accused of accepting the contributions from two corporations, which is against the law.

Howard County Sheriff Stan Parker says he believes the case could be turned over to the District Attorney's office in two weeks.

The District Attorney's office will then determine if a crime was committed and whether or not to pursue the case.
