According to a report in the Commonwealth Journal in Somerset, no charges will be filed by the state in the case of around $25,000 missing from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office evidence room.
The Kentucky State Police investigation is now officially closed, although a representative of the Pulaski Sheriff’s office says an internal investigation is continuing.
At issue is the fact that around the time money went missing from the evidence room, Pulaski Sheriff Greg Speck said the office had a total of four people who served as evidence custodians.
The missing cash was being held as seized evidence in 17 separate cases.
PCSO filed an insurance claim with the Kentucky Association of Counties, which reimbursed the sheriff’s office for the missing money in with a check made out for $25,447.
That gives the office money to return to those it was confiscated from should their cases be dismissed.
