TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- An investigation involving corruption is underway within the Kansas Army National Guard.

The Kansas Adjutant General's office says federal authorities are investigating possible corruption involving outside medical companies contracts with the Kansas Army National Guard.

The Lawrence Journal World reports that Sharon Watson, spokeswoman for the adjutant general's office, confirmed the investigation on Friday and involves "inappropriate conduct on medical contracts."

Watson's statement was in response to a Journal World question referring to allegations that a captain in the Guards Medical Detachment received gifts from Dentrust., a Pennsylvania company that performs dental screenings and treatment for Guard soldiers.

It is one of three firms that contract with the Guard for those services and received more than $585,000 under those contracts between 2012 and 2013.
