    revising of two sentences

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to revise the following two sentences?

    Law enforcement officers detained the mayor of Smolensk Edward Kachanov on suspicion of trying to get a bribe.

    This Feb. 26 told RIA Novosti, "The mayor of Smolensk, was detained today in the afternoon by law enforcement officers on suspicion of having attempted to bribe.

    Thank you for your efforts,

    Regards,

    V.

    Good morning.

    (1) Maybe something like: Law enforcement officers have detained Smolensk mayor Edward Kachanov for allegedly soliciting a bribe.

    Thank you.
