BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - A Florida police department has reportedly completed its investigation into the theft of documents related to baseball's inquiry into whether star Alex Rodriguez used performance-enhancing drugs.

Newsday reported Sunday the investigation ended April 11 with no criminal charges against anyone except a tanning salon employee arrested months earlier after police said his DNA was found on the burglarized vehicle.

However, the newspaper reported that Major League Baseball ignored repeated warnings that the records they sought had been stolen and that they were not to purchase them.

The documents were stolen from the car of Porter Fischer, who took them from Biogenesis, the Miami clinic where he worked and that was accused of dispensing banned drugs to players, including Alex Rodriguez.
