Auditors seek missing money in Beaufort County

Mar 12, 2010 9:18:00 AM - thestate.com
It's more than pocket change missing in one South Carolina county - it could be as much as $300,000 - and authorities are trying to find out where the money went.

The Beaufort Gazette reported accountants hired by the county administrator and the county's top prosecutor began working this week on an audit.

The money is missing from the county treasurer's office from a delinquent tax sale last year. Sheriff P.J. Tanner says estimates of the missing money range from $4,000 to $300,000.

A former treasurer's office employee has been charged with breach of trust with fraudulent intent in the theft of $600 from the office several years ago. Authorities say that worker is a person of interest in the latest investigation.
