TBI investigating possible missing funds in county

According to Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokesperson Kristin Helm, an open and ongoing investigation is currently underway regarding possible missing funds from the Johnson County Mayor’s office. “We are working a case at the District Attorney’s request with the state comptroller’s office about possible missing money from the county mayor’s office,” said Helm.
TBI would not substantiate claims of another unrelated investigation being conducted concerning possible missing money related to the county’s transfer station.
No charges have been filed nor arrests made in either case, and according to Matthew Roark, Assistant District Attorney for this area, authorities cannot release information until that time. If and when an investigation makes its way through the Grand Jury and an indictment is handed down, the matter becomes public knowledge.
County Mayor Larry Potter told The Tomahawk that “until there is something concrete” from TBI that no names or details can be made public. He did indicate that he hopes for a speedy conclusion to the matter.
The Tomahawk will bring our readers more information as it becomes available.
