MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio appeals court has rejected a newspaper’s request for documents turned over to the state criminal investigation bureau as part of a probe into missing drug bust money.

At issue is an investigation by the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation into money missing from the Goshen Township Police Department.

The state got involved at the request of the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office and Goshen Township over approximately $8,000 in missing money orders from a drug bust.

The Community Journal, North Clermont, part of the Gannett Publishing Company, asked the court to order the records turned over a year ago.
