GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the disappearance of money from the Brown County Drug Abuse Resistance Education program that they say has led a longtime deputy to resign.

Press-Gazette Media reports (https://gbpg.net/1xss0fS ) Sheriff John Gossage said Tuesday the probe will likely lead to criminal charges. A nearly 20-year veteran of the D.A.R.E. program resigned two days after the country suspended him in October during the criminal and internal investigation. He hasn’t been arrested or charged.

Authorities won’t say how much money is missing. Gossage says the incident hasn’t affected D.A.R.E. programming in the more than 55 schools it serves.

Gossage says the program doesn’t receive tax dollars and relies on donations and money raised for parking cars near Lambeau Field for Green Bay Packers games.
