Oswego police are investigating a forgery complaint related to candidacy petitions filed with Oswego Township last month.

Boulder Hill resident Rick Jacobsen, whose wife, Allyson, is running for Oswego Township trustee, confirmed Friday that he asked the department to look into petitions submitted by Martin Flowers and Herman Johnson.

Oswego Township Clerk George Hettrich said last week that Flowers, who filed as a candidate for township highway commissioner, and Johnson, who filed as a candidate for township trustee, withdrew their candidacies after their petitions were challenged by Jacobsen.

When contacted, Flowers said he would not be making a statment at this time. Johnson said he was unaware of the complaint.
