POMEROY — A case involving alleged missing funds from the Meigs County Sheriff’s Office is now in the hands of Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office.
An investigation is being conducted by the Attorney General’s office regarding former Meigs County Sheriff’s Office employee Mary Kimes.
Jill Delgreco, a representative of the Attorney General’s office, confirmed to The Daily Sentinel on Wednesday that the office has assigned a special prosecutor to handle the case.
Meigs County Prosecutor Colleen Williams said that a previous investigation was conducted by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office at the request of the Meigs County Sheriff last year. The case was then turned over to the Attorney General’s Office.
Delgreco said the office could not comment on possible charges or details of the investigation at this time.
