Drug money missing from Wood County sheriff’s office

By the Associated Press

An audit has found that nearly $8,000 in drug forfeiture money is missing from the Wood County Sheriff’s Office.

Sheriff Jeff Sandy says the West Virginia State Police and detectives from the Parkersburg and Vienna police departments are investigating the missing money.

A report by the West Virginia

Auditor’s Office says the money was kept in an evidence room. Instead of depositing the money into a bank account, the sheriff’s office used it as a petty cash fund.

According to the report, the last entry in a log book of the fund’s activity was on Jan. 6, 2005.

Sandy has set up a checking account for forfeiture funds in response to the findings.

I think it's pretty obvious what happened to the money. The Sheriff probably "borrowed" the $8000 a little at a time during the past 5 years.

That evidence is covered with a black, resiny substance which smells oddly like combusted marijuana. I must find the source of this and ah... burn it to keep America safe.
