PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - Interim Sheriff Charles Britt said the inventory of vehicles and equipment at the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is going on as scheduled, though a written report on what has been found may not be ready for a week or two.

In February, Britt began an all-out accounting of the items purchased during former Sheriff Mike Byrd’s administration. Early on, information emerged that there may be an excess of specialty vehicles, such as the Ford F-250 or F-350 pickups dealerships said cost $60,000 to $65,000.

Britt tells The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1g4csUk ) so far he’s not surprised by what’s been found so far.

County supervisors said they insisted on the inventory and Britt said it was just common sense when you take over to find out what equipment you have.
