    Updated:

    ROCKLAND, Mass. - Two Rockland town officials are facing misconduct allegations. 

    Sources tell Boston 25 News reporter Drew Karedes that the allegations are sexual in nature and center around claims that two officials participated in inappropriate behavior inside town hall after hours last Wednesday night after leaving a local bar. 

    The sources say surveillance video from Rockland Town Hall is being reviewed as evidence in the investigation.

    The claims were reportedly address at an emergency meeting of the board of selectmen Tuesday night.

    Boston 25 News is not naming either of the officials under investigation because as of now, they are just accusations and the town has not confirmed if any action will be taken against either of the accused. 

    An attorney representing the town released the following statement:

    "I am aware of allegations or rumors involving officials or employees of the Town of Rockland, but have advised my clients that it is inappropriate to comment on personnel matters. The Town has no comment on any alleged incident involving any Rockland official or employee at this time."

    As of now, sources say this is being handled as an internal investigation, but we are told there are active discussions underway about potentially reporting this to police.

    Boston 25 News did check in with police and no formal report has been made.
