  • The Oklahoma Auditor and Inspector's Office says a special audit found nearly $120,000 in unaccounted for money in the Craig County Sheriff's Office inmate trust fund.
     
    The audit examined records from 2007 to 2012. According to the Tulsa World, the report finds that nearly $36,000 was not deposited into the inmate trust fund bank account, which contains cash carried by inmates when they were booked and money that relatives send on behalf of inmates.
     
    Inmates can use the money for purchases at the commissary.
     
    The audit also found that the sheriff's office began charging an unauthorized book-in fee of $25 per inmate beginning in 2009.
     
    District Attorney Janice Steidley says the audit report has been forward to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
