Little River Co. audit result given to prosecutors

Posted:

ASHDOWN (AP) - Results from an audit of the Little River County Rural Development Authority have been turned over to a prosecutor.

The agency's offices were destroyed by a fire last October and investigators discovered that three computers containing customer information and financial data were stolen before the blaze. Investigators said the fire was set deliberately.

An audit revealed "questionable disbursements," according to the Texarkana Gazette.

Auditors said they couldn't verify the validity of some overtime payments, some checks made out to employees and payments made to a pawn shop, a tanning parlor and a community college.

The agency supplies water to the western Little River County. Its board recently fired a manager and accepted a bookkeeper's resignation. Both have been accused of failing to pay state income taxes.
