French police investigate Cofidis leaks

Yahoo! Sport | Police search offices of two French publications over Cofidis allegations

French police seized computers during searches at two French newspapers today.

Police are investigating leaks during the probe of the Cofidis team last year, and are "trying to determine whether narcotics investigators had illegally given information about the probe to journalists at Le Point and L'Equipe."

Police took two computers from the offices of Le Point, while L'Equipe officials wouldn't say what police took, if anything.

Update for rabid Mac-heads: At least one of the computers taken from Le Point was an eMac, as you can see in this VeloNews picture.
