Auditor releases report on misappropriated Tama County funds

TAMA (KWWL) -

State auditor David Vaudt released his report on Tuesday of an investigation into the misappropriation of funds in Tama County.

The report says more than $35,000 collected by the Tama County Sheriff's Office between 2007 and 2010 was never put into the county's bank account and more than $11,000 in jail board fees were never collected.

Tama County Sheriff Dennis Kucera requested the audit after jail administrator Gwen Wathan was fired last December.

The report recommends the sheriff's office adopt stricter controls over financial transactions.

The report has been forwarded to the state attorney general's office, the Iowa Department of Criminal Investigation and Tama County Attorney Brent Heeren.

Heeren declined comment Tuesday.
