Auditor says $82,400 missing from Muscatine County jail

(AP) -

The state auditor says at least $82,400 appears to be missing from Muscatine County's jail accounts.

Auditor Mary Mosiman said Thursday that her review was requested by the Iowa Division of Criminal investigation after the termination of an assistant jail administrator earlier this year.

The audit examined the Muscatine County Sheriff's office's accounts between 2013 and 2016.

Mosiman says jail records were inadequate, so her office couldn't determine exactly what happened to the $82,400.

The auditor's office recommended taking several steps to improve the way accounts are managed in the sheriff's office.

Prosecutors will review the auditor's report to determine if further investigation is warranted.
