ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

At least two St. Louis police officers are under investigation as the department unravels a complex complaint of misconduct involving sex allegations.

News 4 has now learned the FBI has been asked to step in to investigate.

Police confirm there is an internal and criminal investigation going on. Sources say it involves two patrol-level officers, for now

The allegations stem from a complaint that the officers were using an apartment at the Preservation Square Apartments north of downtown for the purposes of having sex.

Investigators are working to figure out if it was illegal sexual activity and where exactly it may have occurred.

Until very recently, there was a police substation at that complex, an unmarked apartment unit with a lock box on it.

Sources say the investigation will determine if the substation was involved or if the officers engaged in the alleged sexual activity during any hours for which they were working for any agency.

The police department asked the FBI to investigate as well, sources say, to determine or rule out if sex trafficking or underage girls were involved.

As for that substation at the apartment, the police say it became a substation in 2005, but hasn't been used in five years.

An apartment complex worker told news 4 there wasn't even electricity running to it.

Generally, the department says, substations are donated to the department and this one was not rented by the department using tax dollars, at least in the last three years.

In early February, the lock was changed and the complex has rented the substation back out as a regular apartment.
